Today, my memories revolve around a trip my spouse, adult son and I took to see family in Brooklyn and Long Island, two years ago today.
I was trying to escape Christmas. My mother in law had died the day after Thanksgiving after a long decline. The last thing I wanted was to celebrate Christmas. Where better to go but to a city that never sleeps. A city where I could celebrate a non-Christmas with family who are Jewish, and do what Jewish people do on Christmas Day (yes we went to a movie, and yes, we ate out after.)
So, I am going to post this photo, taken two years ago today.
Can anyone name what this is a picture of? The answer is below.
Joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for her #WordlessWednesday.
Here's the answer. The house on the left is the Henderick I. Lott house, part of which was built in 1720, and most of which was built in 1800. This is located in a residential section of Brooklyn, in New York City. It's not usually open to the public and their public programs are cancelled due to COVID.
But this house teaches us resilience. We will come back from this.
History teaches us to be patient. Look forward to the future.
And a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate.
