My daughter is in New York for the week, visiting a friend and playing tourist. I just got a text from her telling me she is on her way to Ellis Island and wanted to double check our family name. I hate to sound like a prissy-girl, but I got choked up.
As an historical author, historical events and settings steel me. I'm sure this won't make sense but...when I walk through historical places, everything around me changes. To prevent you from thinking I'm really weird, I'll not go into detail. Then again, maybe it's just my imagination.
Anyway, to think that she will be in the very place where most of our family was at one time, wow, emotional.
