Window To History

Living in Rhode Island, there are ample views into history. We live in the cradle of the birth of a nation. Visual metaphors of history are so ubiquitous that they are often taken for granted. We cannot afford to take this rich history for granted.

Having two boys in our household gives us a greater appreciation for that history. They are thirsty to learn, and we are anxious for them to learn. On this day, we combined some hiking by the salt marshes with our son's desire to learn blacksmithing. That led us to the South County Museum.

I could not help wandering into the Canonchet Estate Stable. This is a ruin made of stone from the land that is so common to Narragansett. Out of the stable windows, one sees some of the museum's taller historical buildings. I am struck by viewing history through history. This striking visual history is too beautiful to take for granted.
