Phantom memories

Dennis Persica, whose home was near the London Avenue Canal:

Occasionally, I'll find myself thinking I can look something up in a book I owned or listen to a particular song on a CD. Like an amputee who thinks he still has the limb he lost, I have phantom memories of things I used to own -- as if I could just walk up to a shelf or open a drawer and find them there.

Ugh. I drove through that area on Sept. 19. Heartbreaking.
