Small town mom” has been on my mind for a long time. The title popped into my head years ago when I was out with my big-city college kid at a funky alternative record (that’s what it said) store on Milwaukee’s East Side. The magic still moving in my brain, I stepped absently into the busy street and Jeff pulled me back to safety. The incident reminded me how much we love it when our grown children introduce me to their world. And also that, when you have a big-eyed small town perspective, you need to watch the traffic.
