PAGE 8 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 8, 2016 THOUGHTS BY DAN ABOUT THIS 8< THAT with Daniel A. DiCenso On Becoming a Ghost The Red Line doors opened and I knew I had crossed into my past. Outside of the car was Fields Comer, part of the neighborhood that once was my home. I have been back to Dorchester many times since my family moved away in 1992. My doctor is still at the Car- ney Hospital and no summer is complete without a trip to Castle Island~ But this was my first journey to reconnect with my past. Dorchester has always been a vibrant community and, though much has changed since I left, I was surprised how much of it has remained much the same. Of course, there have been new developments and the demo- graphics have been changing constantly with immigrants from Southeast Asia being the latest wave to call it their home. But I still recognized it. I knew where everything was and what I would find on each block be- fore I arrived. Because I am in the midst of writing about the supernatu- ral, I have been reading a lot about ghosts, perhaps the most elusive of folk beings because (almost by definition) tl~ey are so hard to define. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who always disproved a supernatu- ral explanation in favor of a natural cause through the ad- ventures of Sherlock Holmes, turned ower a new leaf later in life and became a staunch believer in the edge of the un- known. He was one of the first to offer an explanation to the mystery of ghosts by describ- ing them as an imprint from the past caught in the fabric of time which runs through the present. If Doyle was right, then there might be a new way to think of ghosts. Legend tells us that ghosts haunt places of their past, usually those that were close to their heart while they walked the earth. There is a sadness in being a ghost sel- dom discussed in all the lore surrounding them. Here is a being haunting a place it once knew and still loves, but the place has moved on without it. The new people there would not recognize him even if they saw him. Indeed, if they could see him they would think him rather out of place, especially if many years have passed since the place was his own. That is the tragedy of ghosts. They are no longer a part of the places they once called home. They recognize them well enough, but also see how the place has evolved without them. My own opinion about ghosts is more pragmatic than Doyle's. What are we but ghosts when we step back into the streets we played in as children, or the schools where we first learned to write, or the houses where we took our first step? Certainly we would be strangers there by now and out of place with the new crowd. But we know what those places were and what they meant to us. As I walked down Dorchester Ave., I could almost see shad- ows of what the area once was. Where the" Bank of America is today, I remember as the loca- tion of the first Bank of Boston, a name it held well into my childhood. Inside the America's Food Basket, I instantly rec- ognized relics of the market's former life, the distinct blue and white coloring and red block letters of the Purity Supreme, while the neighboring Wool- worths has become a Fallas. The new generation growing up near Fields Comer will always remember these places as what they are today, but I (and this is because I know to look for them) can always spot the reminders of what they once were. In anew form, these places live on for a new generation which is repre- sented in a lively mural I saw painted alongside the Bank of LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Probate and Family Court Middlesex Division 208 Cambridge Street East Cambddge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI16P1823EA Estate of FRANCIS ROBERT FAMIGLIETrl Also Known As FRANCIS R.

It's a bright large piece celebrating the many cultures and ethnicities that have made Dorchester their home and carry its legacy as an immigrant neighborhood. That, then, is the consola- tion for ghosts. They can see the things they once treasured begin life anew for a new gen- eration. The memories we built there are now being enjoyed by new children. They have come into our world at a different time than us, facing different chal- lenges and with different pas- sions. But, just like we would for old friends, we can take comfort in knowing that the places of our past have found a new audience. I realized this as I made my way past Hemenway Park where I spent many a happy afternoon after school playing soccer or digging for snakes in the grassy area behind the playground. The soccer field is still there and I'm sure there are more snakes for more kids to find today. I finally arrived to my old street and stood in front of the triple- decker home Where I grew up. I spent the first nine years of my life in the first floor apartment and could not have had a hap- pier childhood anywhere else. Many families have come and gone since my own moved away twenty-four years ago. The new people living there would have no way of knowing who I was, much less what a big part of who I am that house and that neighborhood are. How differ- ent is that from a haunting? I am, after all, only a part of that home's past and my imprints on it have vanished like a ghost. Now a new child is leaving their own imprint which, in turn, will also someday vanish. They have different tastes, I'm sure, and a different road ahead of them. But one thing we share, which we will share with all future residents there, is that we've called that house our home.
