Letting Life Lead
A Liebster to me is like when you were in elementary school and it was a new class where you didn’t know anyone and you are feeling sort of lost. Little guppy in a vast global ocean.

People doing extraordinary things like impossible flips on the uneven bars, artists who paint incredible 3D chalk pictures on the streets, kids who play instruments, that fourteen year old girl who sailed around the globe by herself, the people who build fighting robots for competition, and pretty much anyone who can parallel park.
I don’t remember a lot about being young. A lot of it is very fuzzy. I do remember spending summers at my grandparent’s house in the cellar. For years I thought everyone had second kitchens in the basement and stayed down there to get cool and to go in and out to play in their yards through the bulkhead. For the longest time they had an old fashioned four-seater wooden swing that I remember
