And this is where your Auntie is from, darling boys...

I am from good books, from laptops and creativity.
I am from the loving, relaxing peace.
I am from the earth, the cool rain.
I am from table marches and eccentricity, from Dad and Mom and us.
I am from the laughter and deep discussions.
From "you're strong for your age" and "Watch out for your brother."
I am from deep spirituality.
I'm from Washington, from many different nationalities, cinnamon toast, cinnamon rolls.
From the great-aunt with her generosity, her great food, and the love of reading that my grandmother passed down.
I am from the old chest full of memories.

Sounds like some very fortunate nephews.
