Every Home Needs One

I am fascinated by globes and maps. Old ones. New ones. I pore over them, find an obscure location, and wonder what's happening there now.

My interest began back in elementary school days when my teachers would roll down the large and heavy maps from just above the blackboard and quiz us about geography. [Many of you will recall the pink or red colors for the British Empire. Green was used for the French.]

When it came to sparking the imagination, those maps were magic.

And for many of us, they still are.
