She opens the lid delicately, admiring the craftsmanship of the chest. The hinges are a brassy color, the dark cedar nice and glossy.

June 3, 2018

I have stood on the cliffs of Nova Scotia, and walked on the dust of New Mexico. I have touched the waters of the Gulf, climbed the highest peak in Arkansas.
