Eve’s thread Has This Kind of “Community” Ever Existed Before? made me wonder if there’s some place on this planet that all of us have actually been. If some of us have never left their home towns, the answer is obviously “no.” But if all of us have done at least some traveling, there’s a chance that there’s some common point for all of us.
I know there are some places of which it has been said “wait at this place long enough and everybody you know will pass by” and perhaps we could narrow down where that place may be.
If each of us will list ten spots where we have been that we suspect might be that “common ground” then we may be able to narrow it down to at least the state or city, if not the actual spot.
My candidates include:
Washington DC mall
Bourbon Street in New Orleans
Grand Ole Opry (either Ryman Auditorium of Grand Ole Opry House at Opryland in Nashville)
Peachtree Street in Atlanta
Legion Field in Birmingham AL
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Outer Banks North Carolina
Myrtle Beach South Carolina
As lists get submitted, perhaps we can start the zooming in process to street corners or park benches or addresses or whatever.
