His kids were running around the house like chickens without their heads. His wife was bitching and moaning about all of the “things” she said she wanted but couldn’t afford to have. Albert had no choice but to seek sanctuary in his garage.
Last year Albert bought an old, yellow Checker taxi. He had it towed to their home, parked it in their garage, and began the process of refurbishing it. With the pressures of his regular job and the chaos always swirling around his family, working on that old Checker was nutrition for his soul.
He couldn’t begin to count the times he had gone out to the garage, his sanctuary, to take a break from everything and to focus on bringing that baby back to life.
And on bringing himself back to life.
