On the road again

I mentioned the other day that I would be on vacation for part of April.  We’re headed to the Netherlands to revel in the land of my ancestors (my great-grandfather came from Hoorn).  I will have Internet access in Amsterdam and elsewhere, but I don’t plan to spend my vacation posting blog updates–I’m supposed to be getting away from it all!  So, as I did with Vienna last fall, I’ll keep a written journal while I’m there but I’ll wait until I return to transcribe it here.

However, I’d like to keep the blog up to date as much as possible, so I’ll be pre-writing a couple of my Writer’s Notebook entries and scheduling them to post while I’m away.  Keep an eye out for those, and any impromptu posts I might toss out from Amsterdam.  And look for the week-long account of our travels in the Netherlands when we return!

  1. MEMORIES FLASH BACK: WALKING IN ANCESTORS FOOT STEPS OR PRINTS AS THE MIND CAN IMAGIN. FOR ME IT OCCURRED IN DELAWARE AND PEN NSYLVANIA. gRANNY’S ANCESTOR THOMAS ADAIR b. 1680, IRELAND emigrated to South Carolina moved to Delaware and Pennsylvania. My ship docked in a Delaware port not far from Pennsylvania so I went trodding, imagining I was walking and feelingb his presence as I journied to Pennsylvania, one of the weirdest feelings I had ever encountered, and in my heart I had WALKED WITH AN ANCESTOR. sO, SAM i know what you experienced. We are going to enjoy conversing.
