Coming Home

“You’ll look back on this summer as a mark of your becoming,” Janice had my friends mesmerized – as usual – some in tears. The thought of leaving our 63 year old big sister figure for six months was bittersweet. “This will be a summer of transformation.” Her simple words always seemed to be so…
