Everyone knows that life lessons are learned on the field, court, pool, track or anywhere people play their sport.

Home can be found anywhere. In a city you’ve never been to but speaks to your heart, in a song that takes you to a memory you hope to never forget, in the eyes of the friends you’ve had for decade or the kitchen island that has an equal amount of friends. I find home in everything. This poetry book puts home into words and knows exactly where your heart is.
