My sister and I spent the day at Harkness Memorial Park a while back. This is a local attraction that at one point had been a private home. The grounds go on forever and are immaculately kept. As we wandered through the endless gardens, I found myself wondering about the people who lived here. What were their lives like? How did they spend their days? What were they thinking when they stood in the same spot where I was now standing? Do you ever think about the people who occupied your space in a different era?
