MISSING THE BOAT  –  PART TWO

 

“I like the one where he doesn’t miss the boat because it seems happier” my grandson said without hesitation.

“What if he did not miss the boat on his second attempt and the boat had trouble at sea and this man was responsible for saving many lives?”

“Now I don’t know which story I like….this gets confusing!”

“Time travel or how an event in the past affects subsequent events has been written about for years. You must admit we talked about a time machine and what we would do with it if we had one.”

My grandson began to have one of his “light bulb moments” and gave me his thoughts on what can be a difficult concept to grasp at any age! Never underestimate a young person’s ability to break down the most difficult concepts. Give them the opportunity and you will always be amazed at their conclusions and perspective on a given topic. More importantly – give them your “time.”

Snapshots in Time: “Missing The Boat”

 

 

 MISSING THE BOAT  –  PART ONE

missing-the-boat

It was the early nineteen hundreds and a man was planning to make the journey from Europe to America to establish a home for himself. When he arrived at the dock he found out that the boat had sailed long before his arrival. He was extremely disappointed and did not try again until years later. This is the first version of the story.
There is another version where this same young man does not miss the boat and on the voyage to America, he meets a young woman, falls deeply in love with her and they are later married. They settle in America and raise six children who in turn have children of their own.

To be continued…
