The wheelchair graveyard located in her basement hints at her life’s story. Her first chair, now a spider’s canvass, once shone of chrome and steel. The aluminum one she took to law school lies disabled, flat racing tires now a home to mice. Her favorite chair, the one she married her husband in, still holds pieces of Lanai’s red clay.



“‘Great things come in small packages,’ they say. But I’ve noticed small things also come in small packages.” —J.A. Taylor
