Time Travel

Whether we like it or not, we can all agree that timing and traveling are intertwined.

Traveling exclusively by trains, boats and my own two feet, I traversed the French-speaking cities of Geneva,…

Travel Trunks

One day in, my early 20s, I entered part of our farm that I rarely encountered—the dusty attic, of the brick garage, on our farm. The steep and precarious staircase to the attic rendered it an area off limits to me as a child. Like most farm kids I know, my parents disciplined through fear. “Fall in the river and…
