From FIRST THOUGHTS –
“This memoir—written in a series of linked essays—was
born from that spirit, to examine the broad notion of home,
how it morphs and eludes, and the search for it—from family
roots to personal discoveries—growing up, moving on, returning
to, and embracing a singular sliver of the universe.
Like many, I have investigated near and far, from my boyhood
home’s big side porch to destinations around the world and
down the street, stumbling and tripping, hoping to uncover
pieces of myself in some way through work, leisure, and love,
taking fragments of my experiences with me to build something—
a home, a place under the stars. And it is the consequence
of all those stars that is the eternal search. There is no
straight path. There is no map.”
