Talking about Downward Mobility

Today I am guest posting at D.L. Mayfield’s site and I’m so excited to be included among so many brilliant voices in her Downward Mobility series. My post is about how my family’s attempt at the American Dream left us pretty groggy.

Here’s an excerpt:

I grew up in a nice, big house and I’ve always wanted to live in a house like that or even better. I’m a homebody. I like to be at home. I like to invite people into my home. I like to have overnight guests in my home. And the nicer the home, the bigger the home, the better off I felt I would be. So I let my dream of a big, nice home cloud my thinking about the (lack of) reasonability of us getting into the housing market in South Florida.

I first got to know D.L. Mayfield with her War Photographer series which just got me thinking ever blessedly much. I am grateful to Sarah Bessey whose tweet about Tara Livesay’s War Photographer guest post first turned my attention to D.L. Mayfield.
