Yes, they are magnets on the side of a refrigerator. And yes, some of them stand out more than others. But each one is a representation of something important, at least to me. My husband and I like to travel and these are the mementos I treat myself to.As you can see, we’ve been to New York and visited various museums, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. We visited Springfield, Illinois–Land of Lincoln. Washington D.C. –the Holocaust Museum, among many others. And there’s Boston, Vermont, Chicago, Milwaukee, etc. Place that have brought a lot of happiness to me, others that have brought tears. But not just places. Places stand for people, for history. Tomorrow we are going to Connecticut for the first time so there will be a new magnet to join the others. And new inspiration for my writing.
