A recent trip to Virginia brought new sights and a return of old favorites. Mount Vernon will always remain on my list of favorite places on this earth. To stand in the dining room of this mansion and gaze into the very mirror George Washington himself once gazed into, gave me chills. Photos are not allowed inside the home. If I could take only one photo, it would be of that mirror. How many reflections have stared back through that piece of glass? This fascinates me. To sit on the porch, look out over the Potomac River, is surreal beyond words.
