Three important things a child learns on hot summer Texas evenings. One, seek out the shade and breeze on the screened porch. Two, don’t move -- someone might get your listening spot. Three, parents and grandparents tell wonderful stories, about ancestors and life’s challenges and successes.
With such a love of stories born, it is only natural, decades later, that I love books and travel, the Bible and its stories, and coffee shops -- where the magic of sharing happens.
