Providence, RI – Passages. Most of us walk through our lives with a sense that we are part of a journey that is full of mystery, challenge, joys, and the occasional sorrow. The most fortunate among us travel down life's paths with a keen sense of awareness that what we experience today may disappear tomorrow or, perhaps, show up in very different form. Sarah Sutton reminds us how important it is to pay very close attention to the passage of time.

Sutton grew up in Warwick, attended Brown University, and worked as a journalist before beginning a Ph.D. program at Brandeis University, where she studies environmental history. She lives in Pawtucket with her husband and two daughters.
