Ding in the Universe

April 15, 2015 - 2:12pm
This past weekend I visited my daughter in New York City. Yes, my only baby is all grown up and living by herself in the Big Apple and it's kind of a big deal - for me, that is. For almost her whole life, my universe was her universe and consisted of the community where we lived. We followed certain routes to school, shopped at the same stores, walked familiar paths, dined at regular haunts and explored the borders of our universe when we had the opportunity. Then, she went off to college across the ocean, expanding her universe to limits I had never imagined. All of a sudden, her world was completely different than mine. She was treading down paths I had never set foot on and expanding her universe by leaps and bounds. When I was lucky enough to visit her, I was merely a guest in her world. The tables were turned and she was the one with all the answers and I simply followed her lead. I've been to New York City before, yet this time was different. Once again, I was simply a visitor in my daughter's world. As she confidently hopped on the subway taking charge of getting to our destinations, showed us where to find the best cheap eats and navigated through throngs of people I realized that NYC was now her universe.

Sarah Fagerman: Changing My Course

April 15, 2015 - 11:26am
My Peckham journey began in 2012, when I was just starting my sophomore year of college. I had enrolled in a creative workshop which entailed working with folks at a local manufacturing facility on an art installation. I had no idea how those things fit together, but it sounded interesting, so I signed up for the class. Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever imagined how one class would change the course of my entire life.
