My daughter and I visited Salem, Massachusetts this past week. It was a beautiful day, so we walked around the grounds of the Peabody-Essex Museum and explored the Faberge exhibit inside the main museum building. I am right in the middle of a great historical novel and the really old Puritan architecture of a few of the old houses just captured my imagination. Just imagine all the feet that kicked that door open because arms were loaded with wood for the fires. Who peered out those windows over the years watching neighbors and strangers pass by? Who lovingly tended those mullioned panes over the years or cared for those cedar shake shingles on the roof? What inspired that red dooryard rose hedge? There is so much history right beside us as we walk through this life ... amazing, huh? Don't you wish you could time travel? I do.
