My childhood home was in the woods. My grandparents came to the United States from Italy and cultivated six acres of land with fruit trees, flowers, vegetable gardens, fish ponds, chickens, and a goat named Sicily. This is where I grew up, and it seemed natural that everything was connected. I adored nature and had intimate relationships with the plants, trees, rocks, and water.
