Maneuvering the large, broad car down Brooklyn’s streets, I felt like a ship captain navigating through icebergs. On Saturday morning, Drew helped me pile the station wagon to the rafters with clothing and books and a small potter’s wheel. The steering wheel, padded with fur, slipped easily through my fingers as I dodged kamikaze taxis and nosed around corners.

Honor thy father and thy mother.
