This week in our Unravelling class we're exploring memories. One of my favorite photos of myself from childhood is the one above of me lying in the grass staring up at the sky. Grass on a summer afternoon with the drifting clouds above was like a sedative for me - everything else drowned out and I was peacefully enamored with the world.

Fast forward to three years ago when a friend snapped this photo of me lying in the ivy near the Art Institute.

Some behaviors, thoughts and practices are embedded in us and run through the very fiber of our being. I like the idea of discovering these things - to connect the dots between then and now.
