In the Spring of 2005, I moved into a small studio apartment in Birmingham's Southside. I stayed there until mid-2008, at which point it had become the residence in which I had lived the longest since I was eleven years old; and for another few months, that will remain true of that place. The apartment was only a couple hundred square feet; it was on the fifth floor, with no elevator; and the hundred-year-old building stank of a century of humanity. But it was an important time and place for me. I did a lot of writing, and growing, and becoming the person I am (for better or worse) while living there. This is that building's basement.
