Immersion and Connection

Our trip is now water under the bridge.

We crossed a lot of bridges on our trip, both figurative and literal and we soaked up a lot of knowledge, sunshine and local color.

We were immersed in history, in the Atlantic ocean, in the Magothy river, in the kindness of friends, relatives and even strangers.

We made bridges between events in time, we connected with the living and with artifacts that the dead left behind. We certainly made a lot of connections among neurons in our brains. And we were immersed in each other's company and connected by our shared experiences.

Right now I plan to make such trips often. Once a year if I can.

Before the girls' childhoods are water under the bridge.

Even when the girls are well into adulthood, your photography and your writing will be such beautiful and evocative memories for them, and for their own children.

A vacation to rest up after the vacation. Always a good idea. :)


i like to mix history with present fun- like science and modern art musuems or cultural jewels like the street vendors and performers at Quincy Market in Boston.
