The Changing of the Tide

Last night I watched as my friend separated her “keeps” from her “give-aways”.  Everything from jewelry to clothes was being placed into one of those piles because in just a few weeks she will be leaving the city for a year…maybe forever.  She’s been waiting for this moment.  To finally be released into international territory… Continue reading The Changing of the Tide
