The Art of Inside
When I think about my ancestors crossing the Atlantic to come to America, I can’t help but wonder what they brought with them. The less we are able to carry, the more precious those items must have become. Like the one souvenir we choose from thousands, I imagine each possession came to represent many places, experiences, and people. Most of those things are long gone, but when I look at my family today, I see evidence of the people who migrate— bringing flavors, language, values, and traditions.
