“She took a step and didn’t want to take any more,
but she did.”
Moving to Savannah was a big step. The sun is hot here and you expect the deep cold of the North to be left behind. Hot and so strong, so you choose colors for the garden that will stand up to it. The scent of gardenia greets as you come in and go out. Step by step, you wait for the warmth to spread and stay.
