Stumbling Around Historic Grounds

In my quest to understand how we came to stand united under one flag...

...I made a point to visit Beaufort South Carolina...

...found this 1750 church underneath the Live Oaks...

...in the middle of Low Country....

...before the Revolutionary War...

...it is said that Thomas Jefferson introduced Neoclassical Architecture.... 

...to find these brick columns, built around the time Thomas was just a boy... 

...brings me to think that some significant and historical events remain lost in the swamp of the Low Country....

...guarded by the ghosts of its time....

...then I landed at the University Of Virginia...

...and came to the realization that architecture is another form of knowledge... 

...from what was learned before and built again... 

...evolves into, yet, another idea of how to construct a roof...

...and create a temple of knowledge and learning...

...as you progress on building your sanctuary...

...taking your visionary dreams of what could be...

...underneath this Mulberry Tree...

...to walk the grounds of a visionary...

...and know that I too can extend my knowledge and vision onto the next generation so they may never underestimate what their dreams can become...

...is what history is for.
