  • My granddad took me & Michael on a tour of his artifacts displayed in his bookshelf and around his condo. He had collected these possessions throughout his life's journeys to India, Norway, Virginia, England, Coronado, Chichen Itza. He was on the hunt to show me some family photos I'd never seen and to teach me what a slide rule was.
    We walked through his life that day and each object had a few stories attached to it.
