Intersections – A Very Little Goodbye

Posted by Decaturish.com September 28, 2016

By Nicki Salcedo, contributor  I like sidewalks unearthed by roots. I like squirrels that throw acorns from above. I like the sound of MARTA barreling into town. I like the broken echo of the conductor’s voice in the breeze. I like being delayed by the freight train that dissects the City of Decatur into North […]

Intersections – What we stand for

Posted by Decaturish.com September 20, 2016

Intersections – One ugly night of homework

Posted by Decaturish.com August 24, 2016

By Nicki Salcedo, contributor  I’m one of the few parents who doesn’t mind homework. I understand that too much can create stress. But I wonder if the stress is on the kids or on the parents. I play it cool. My kids either get their homework done or they don’t. If they need my help, […]

Intersections – Let Me Die in Rio

Posted by Decaturish.com August 17, 2016

By Nicki Salcedo, contributor  A few days before I left for Rio de Janeiro, I bumped into a neighbor while I shopped with my kids. I’m not a nervous traveler. I enjoy seeing new places even though I’m a homebody at heart. Still, I try to be realistic about travel. It’s rarely glamourous. Delays. Exhaustion. […]
