American Ghosts

Growing up as a latchkey kid in the 1980s, I had a version of America painted by television. It was a technicolor landscape with towering mountains, lush woods, and playful critters entertaining vacationers. 

I've since come to realize that "technicolor" is not the name of a place but a process of crafting fiction. American Dreams can transform into American Ghosts when the places they are tied to change or disappear. These American Ghosts hold the power to be forgotten.
