Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 7.50.50 AM When I was a little girl, I found a small black rectangular object near my grandparents cellar door. I didn’t know what it was, but it felt heavy and important. I ran into the house and asked grandma if I could keep it. She held it between her crooked finger tips and said, “You found a magnet!”
