We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place
We stay there even though we go away
And there are things in us that we can find again
Only by going back there.
We travel to ourselves when we go to a place that we have covered a stretch of our life
No matter how brief it may have been.
Lines from movie"Night Train to Lisbon"
I spent a week with Gosia in Krakow and then moved on to the farmlands of my ancestors in Kolbuszowa.
I've traced my family back to the 1700's... as far as the church records go. On this trip I spent time with distant relatives on their wonderful old farm where some of my family lived many years ago. My friends on Facebook were amused to see me on the tractor. :-)
This trip was made with the intention of writing the final chapter of my book, Journey Into Poland: My Roots in Grandfather's Village. It will be published and available in October, 2015 - available through Amazon.com.
