DAY 78 - Story Of A Stranger

TITLE: Travis Wentmore

ASSIGNMENT: Make up a name and write a back story for a stranger you see today.

MATERIALS: Random web photo and Word(s).

INSPIRATION: None to speak of. Just grabbed a picture off the internet and add a back story.

Born in Corinth, Mississippi in 1994, Travis lived with his Father after his parents’ divorce in 2001.  He had a hard time in school and moved several times due to his Father looking for carpentry work  He saw his Mother only one other time when he went with his Father to visit her in in prison at the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility.  She had been arrested for drug-related charges that had continued until she no longer knew who she was selling it to and who she was getting it from.  Travis spoke maybe three sentences while she cried and apologized for 20 minutes, telling him she would try harder.  His Father never took him back and he has not seen her in 4 years.  His Father gave him the choice to stay with him and possibly risk moving again, or go live with his Aunt Lisa in Seattle, WA.  Travis chose to move to Seattle after some debate.  He is on the bus and on his way and took this shot to send to his Father.
