When I awoke this morning I thought of the moment I learned how to read, I think “house” was one of the words, and it was in the evening in the living room of our old house and Mom and Dad were there and I told them.

I read for them haltingly and with every burst of two or three words it was like stumbling down a hill, thinking I was going to fall with every step but surprised to find my feet beneath me.
