Favorite place: My grandmother’s front porch, in Dallas,
My favorite place is my grandmother’s front porch, in South Dallas. She lives next to I-45, and I always sit and watch the cars go by. As a child, I’d wonder who was in those cars and where in the world they could be going so fast. Now I know how those drivers must feel, yet a part of me is always six years old, and when I sit on that porch, I forget all about rushing to and fro. My mind is completely still.
