Moving Writing

My grandfather died from pneumonia. […]

I Thought It Would Be Harder

September 16, 2013 I thought it would be harder. I thought I would miss the old house more. But already, I love this house. I love the openness. I loved on moving day that everyone stood around and was eating and talking at the bar. I love looking out the window and seeing Kuy play […]
