It’s that time of year again for my visit to the land of the stones, Amesbury, which is known for Stonehenge and the traffic jams it’s known to cause much to the consternation of Faith my half-sister. Family and friends are truly the most valuable commodity in my worldly wanderings. It’s a joy to have this ongoing continuity and emotional nourishment along the way.
My Amesbury visit is always accompanied by a surprise for young Charlie. Some of my favorite childhood memories were of relatives bearing gifts from afar so I’ve made sure to continue that tradition for the benefit of my daughter, granddaughters, Charlie and a few others. Choosing and giving cool gifts is something I know how to do, and I get a kick out of it.
