3 Boats & Diamante Dog

back | Salt of the Earth| next

I sometimes joke, when asked about my roots, "I come from a long line of Italian peasants." Are these 'my people'? If we are talking 'my people" from my father's side from southern Italy, they raised sheep, sold horses. I think that's right. The family history is murky, consisting of snatches of phrases and half-remembered, likely incorrect, details told years ago and handed off poorly. Yet here we are, standing on the soil of forefathers, grandmothers, second cousins once removed, come back to see. And to see what happens when the strings of the heart are set to a more ancient tuning.
