Time travels

You can go from here to there in seconds.

Here is the computer that you are sitting in front of and there is Graffigny-Chemin, where Marguerite Chevallierwas raised and where she met James Madison Pearson.

Google takes you to the church across the street from where she lived. Observe the carriage house and gardens of her house. In my view, the number 52150 appears on top of the house. A path to the left of the image leads to the hill where I took the view of the village. (See wikipedia entry on Graffigny-Chemin.) The path leading out of the village to the top of the picture goes to Bourmont where during World War I, the Second Infantry Division was originally headquartered. The path leading to the right is the ancient Roman Way from Langres to Toul near the birthplace of Joan of Arc.

Time travels. The past is the compression of all that has happened, waiting to be revealed.
