Baby Shoes in the Garden
I took my first steps in these red leather baby booties. My earliest and most powerful childhood memories are of the private heaven of a fruit garden in our old home in Isfahan, Iran, where I wore them. But when I was six years old, we moved to a modern city, and my passion shifted from trees to books and ideas. When I left for Canada, my mother gave me these booties. I found a use for them when we bought our first house here.
