A Slice of History


"A man is a bundle of relations, a knot of roots,
whose flower and fruitage is the world."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yesterday we toured the Harriton House ~ an historic mansion located in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. This house sits atop a hill about fifteen minutes from my childhood home.
As we strolled, talked and learned, I was reminded of how powerfully we
are connected to the people
and the places that make up our personal
and collective histories.

Enjoy the tour!

Oh, that looks like a wonderful tour. Was the kitchen in the basement... I can almost smell that delightful "old house smell"!
