Although neither of my paternal grandparents are still living, I enjoyed driving by their home every now and then and watching the seasons change. Someone outside of the family bought the property and ran a business there for a bit. Finances must have changed because the property now belongs to Dollar General.

Once again, I can stop by to visit a place that I still drift to in my dreams. In my dreams, it's always summer. The garden's ripe. The garage is filled with records. The kitchen is buzzing. I am young, and I am old. My grandparents are well.
The other good news is that I get to help Page move forward by serving on the design team. We've met twice so far, and I am heartened to be able to help bring something functional and beautiful into the lives of so many. What an architect we have on our side. I'm looking forward to seeing this building emerge from the dirt too.
