When my mother was pregnant with my brother, they moved to Harrisburg Pennsylvania and lived there for a year. Louis was born there and my mother was quickly pregnant with me. I don't know the details, but they left PA for Indiana. It's cheaper and "nicer" and "whiter" i imagine. They bought a little house in a row of houses surrounded by cornfields on a road called "975 E". Little yards, eight houses. acres and acres of cornfields in all directions.
I was born there at 1:55pm on a Thursday afternoon, June 1st, 1978.
apparently i was jaundiced
maybe i was just olive-skinned?
i was named after my father's mother's father's brother: Domenico Guiseppe Palmozo. . . and one of my mother's favorite saints.
