Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Wonder: "When do you remember first becoming aware of a world beyond your family-of-origin? What caught your attention? How old were you? What did you think/feel about it? What did other people around you say/do?"

Walking around Glendale hand-in-hand with my grandfather as a young child, while he talked to people in the neighborhood, and showed me his favorite things in the parks and the cemeteries, and introduced me to the local shopkeepers.

It made me feel happy, alive, safe, and curious about people and the world.
