"I saw my father with his eyes closed, basking in the early sun, sipping a cup of strong black coffee."

"A place is both itself
and what we make of it, as we are ourselves
and what a place makes of us."
- from "Pecans" by
Connie Wanek in her book "On Speaking Terms" (2010) from Copper Canyon Press.
