I was born in Dorchester, went to St. Kevin Grammar School, Cardinal Cushing High School and Boston City Hospital Nursing School. Those buildings are long gone. But they are a part of me. My brothers and I played kick the can on the street, baseball in a parking lot and threw pimple balls against the wall of St. Margaret’s Hospital. We shopped at Elm Farm in Uphams Corner and occasionally went to see a movie at the Strand. Boston is in my child hood. It’s comfort and nostalgia. It’s in my blood.
