Much to my delight, it seems like others are also following the lead provided at Pratie Place and Fragments from Floyd and writing their own "Where I Am From" poems. Catez posted hers a couple of days ago, and Sherry at Semicolon posted hers tonight. Both are beautiful and evocative--go read.
At the risk of sounding like the writing teacher I dream of becoming, I encourage y'all to try this exercise; the template is at Fragments from Floyd. It's a lot of fun (even if parts of it make you sad), it will bring back memories, and it can be a real gift for those you love.
Update: dulciana has posted her poem here.
