As a little girl, I can remember looking forward to the summertime. The smell of breakfast being cooked in the kitchen by my grandmother, or “Nanny” as I called her.

I sat on a bench at the heart of the Auburn University campus adjacent to what I believe they still call  “The Quad.” It was a Saturday morning, the first weekend of that year’s spring break week, and I had chosen to remain in Auburn in lieu of taking yet another debauched beach vacation.
