there and back again

Back from the UK and a conference about Charlotte Mason ( still absorbing all the people's conversations and sessions and the place where I do believe people get to live... you know those picturesque places do have know... where beauty expands the sky every day and the landscape pulls you outside.. people actually get to live there!) and 
meeting relatives in Scotland and seeing where my grandfather lived before leaving on the first ship in Glasgow to go out and it turned out to be to America. Seeing Cambridge and a walking tour with Christian Heritage at the Round Church which is the second oldest church which means St. Columba. Seeing lambs rambling behind their mamas was a sight I am sure I have never seen. So I am back and trying to get into the saddle before the horse takes off!

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Cambridge, is an Anglican church in the city of Cambridge, England, and is known locally as The Round Church.The church was built around 1130, its shape being inspired by the rotunda in the church of the Holy SepulchreJerusalem

A conference like that, in such a place, would be very stimulating -- so much to process. I love that story about your grandfather.... the luck of the ships, God's Providence, had a lot to do with who you are today. :-) I'll look forward to further reports as you decompress!
