Memories

An article of clothing can bring me back to a distant memory so quickly it feels like I’m riding on a jet plane. One autumn day in Houston, Texas I was walking through Rice University and my boyfriend grabbed my belt loop.  I took the next step forward and heard “RRRIIIIIPPP”.  He had pulled the […]

“I used to grow gardenias THIS big,” exaggerated my great uncle as he rounded his fingers into a circle as large as a dessert dish.

Inspire

As I followed the instructions of the GPS, my car rounded another corner, ascended the driveway and a striking view of Adirondack mountains swept in front of me.  I couldn’t help but stare.  So often I am rushing from place to place that I forget to stop and drink in what nature has to offer.  The sky […]
