About ‘Midwest sentimental’:

I spent three years of my mid-twenties living in my mother’s basement in the American Midwest. Love, sadness, and humor have come to define those years, which led me to ask:

What makes a family click?
What holds a family together?
And, what allows for a family to move on from a troubled past?

In three years, I found few definitive answers. Instead, what came of it was the experience of a collective exhale of momentary release and reflection.
