About

“If you stay long enough in one place the whole world will pass by.” That’s what my Native American teacher used to say to me. He knew my love for travel – I’d been to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Central America – and was trying to tell me I needn’t really go anywhere to find what I was looking for. That was years ago, before I got married and had children.

My husband and I have an eight-year-old and a five-year-old. We live in the suburbs, in Michigan, and whenever I have an itch to travel, I don’t search the web for airline tickets and pack up any luggage (well, occasionally I do). I simply find a place that draws me, chase down my two young ones, dress them up, throwing a bit of profanity here and there when my son decides to make it a circus affair, and off we go in our mini-van which I’d recently dented when I backed into a garbage dumpster in the parking lot of our local video store. We end up landing in various places, which to me have held the same wonder and awe I experienced when traveling abroad. This blog is about my community. And the world around it that makes it what it is.
