O Talking Heads' This Must Be the Place, 1982. IN THE By Michelle Aviña C M N A P Y Qüentin coffee Coatepec-Xico Veracruz with notes of red apple, chocolate, bourbon, and spices, $12.50, at S ometimes it's a scent; other times, just a fleeting moment. These things we remember — fragments in a life of so many things. They come and go, and often circle back, but are rarely the same, serving as reminders of a different time. A time when cares were few and our perspectives were different. Home … Sometimes beautiful, other times comforting … Sights, smells, and shapes that help to define the world as we have come to see it. Walking the streets of DF in Ray-Bans with red lipstick brings me back to the place I grew up, reading Palinuro of México, being a kid who felt like I ruled my little universe. Twenty-seven years later, it's changed, but the fragments are still there, and in those moments nothing has changed except the faces. Reconnecting. Friends. Drinks. Home. Reminds me of the little things we forget along the way.
