Benita talks about a table that's moved physically in her home and remembers fondly the stages of this time. It began 11 years ago as a kitchen table for her family, moved to be the foundation for her home office, then off to the boatroom to become another desk and finally a sideboard as storage.
It's neat looking at these pieces in generations and when you think about them, memories spark of where you were in your life at that time. Kind of how a song places you in a moment.
