On Missing England

A friend of ours from Cornwall, Jo Riley, emailed Rachel this morning, saying that their boys, Alex and Simon, as well as everyone else in Year 2 at St. Minver School, very much missed seeing Nathaniel on this the first day of school.

I’ve been thinking a lot about England lately, comparing it to the US in general, and Sausalito in particular. Most of it is a result of missing the simpler life we had in Cornwall. But lately it’s also been the result of reading the sometimes horrifying reports of what’s been happening in New Orleans, and wondering whether we wouldn’t rather be bringing up the boys some place a little more civilized.

And so I’ve decided to write a seriers of articles entitled “Things I Like About…". These will be little vignettes of our lives in Cornwall and Sausalito, stories to help me remember why we’re here, and why we were there.

  1. I have a huge interest in Cornwall, as I have been told since I was young that my ancestors hailed from Cornwall. Everytime I engage someone from England in a conversation about Cornwall, they become wistful. Why did you leave?
