A girl and her cat take on the world with nothing more than a cup of tea and a good book and enough dreams to fill the universe.
This piece is based off the reading of “What You Know First” by Patricia MacLahlan.
I always joke with my family and friends about how my life didn’t begin until my sister was born. I honestly don’t remember anything before that, but is knowing what you know first the same as remembering those first moments or is it the first things, the most treasured things that made you who you first were? Is it the dish soap and cigarettes shopping lists of your grandma’s? Is is the long road trips across the emptiness of Wyoming, Nebraska, and Kansas, from the brown to the green? Is it the longing to hike to the top of all the mountains of Montana? Is it all the stops along the way to visit famous people’s grave sites? Is what I knew first the horrible pink bathrooms my parents would remodel? Is it sledding down Mount Krumpet and convincing my sister to run away to the stand of trees next to the nursing home? Is it the Thanksgiving dinner when the turkey was as big as I was and had its own table? What is it that I knew first?

Push your mind, get inspired & be on top of the world.
