Going Home – Reckoning with the Past, and the Spaces that Define Us

Spaces It’s that time of year. It’s the time of year when nostalgia inevitably gets the best of me.

At Home, Underneath the Stars

A Fool’s Paradise

I have been up since 3:30am. Not because I have trouble sleeping, but because I heard an alarm going off somewhere in my house. It was not my alarm, that’s for darn sure.
