Meadowbrook Elementary - Ft. Worth
The notion of time passing while place remains static is interesting to contemplate. I've done it while walking the banks of the James at Jamestown, while visiting the assembly room at Independence Hall, and at numerous ancient battlefields. In those places, there is a difference in the experience that depends on whether the place is simply a column of air atop a certain footprint on earth's surface, the structures and other evidences of man long gone. Or if the footprint is still occupied by some or all of the things those ancients saw, smelled, and felt. In this case, everything is still there....nearly 60-years on...
