History is everywhere- under our feet, in our walls and infrastructure, remaining steadfastly in place while the modern world creeps up around it, sometimes absorbing it and making it into attractions for tourists to thrill to, other times steering well clear with shuttered doors and barred windows and warning signs to KEEP OUT.
It’s everywhere, and respected. It makes the world richer and brighter. We bring these old places into our hearts and make them loved- perhaps they’ll love us back. Their ghosts haunt us even now.
