I haven't been gone all that long, but the visit to Target today -- to load up on laundry soap and other household essentials -- took my breath away.
The abundance. The clean sparkling shelves.
This boy is hammering nails. Used and bent nails. To make them straight again, to sell in the market or on the street.
Taken two weeks ago in Guatemala City, a short plane ride from Chicago, but miles removed from all that we have, all that we use without gratitude, all that we discard.
