Where are you from?

Growing up, my parents repeatedly gave me the same instructions: Remember who you are and what you stand for.  This was our family’s mantra and it was recited before every major event, milestone, or morning before school.  It played such a role in my own personal formation that my parents had the letters RWYAAWYSF engraved on the inside of my class ring.

But I was pondering this week, and the thought hit me, “We should add one more thing… Remember where you came from.”  I live in Austin now – the city that likes to keep things weird, but I’m from a 300+ acre ranch just outside of Garrison, TX.  This picture is one my dad took of the entrance to our ranch.  This is where I’m from.
