Northern Lights Point, Glenburnie, NY
Because I spent many summers here as a child, I developed an interest in nature and art and history. We're in a historically rich environment here. This is where it all happened, right here in the northeast, "the Key to the Continent." I have many early recollections of visiting Fort Ticonderoga. Years later I found out that there were historical reenactments and I became involved in reenacting. I found it totally captivating. It was like time traveling back into the 18th century. It's very moving to witness the recreation of events so much like they were in the past. The way of life that was both simpler but harder back then. The rewards were rich.
