This is the story of my childhood from birth to the age of ten when my family immigrated to America. The story beginning with my reminiscing on the airplane during the journey to my hometown of Jonadi in Calabria Italy, for the first time in over sixty years ago. It was those memories of my childhood that always bubbled inside me, that forced me to write. Memories of a country I was just beginning to know and love, then uprooted and moved, never again to feel those roots cultivated to full form. It left me always longing and wondering what might have been.
