Another Place and Time





Sometimes, I look around
and I
feel like perhaps
I'm living
in another
place and time.














I wonder what it might have
been like to live
behind stone walls...






...or take a romantic ride
in a horse-drawn
carriage.



I can almost hear
Chopin's melancholy
Polonaises sifting
through the branches
of the trees.




But, then I turn around and see that some things remain the same through the ages in every place and time.

I love the old buildings of Europe.
What a great experience to be their and enjoy all. I haven't heard "Polonaises" in years. It certionally fits in with the country.
