Providence, RI – All of us take time now and then to retrace our steps in life, sometimes figuratively and sometimes literally. Perhaps we close our eyes and take ourselves back in time to relive those poignant and meaningful moments in our lives. And, like Mike Fink, sometimes we make a real pilgrimage to those places, looking for clues of what shaped who we are today.

Fink is an English professor at the Rhode Island School of Design. He has published columns in a wide range of local and national magazines and earned the Providence Journal's Metcalf Award and the National Conference for Community Justice Award, as well as the Never Again Award for journalism.
