I'm trying to find out about the orphan trains and their connection to Staten Island. I know that I want to write a poem about it but I don't know what form it will take, or exactly what I'm going to say. I just had some kind of STRONG intuitive feeling that this is a path that I have to investigate. I don't know why. Maybe Donna can help me figure it out! Your link gave me a human connection that I was looking for. Coincidentally, the woman mentioned in the article lived very close to me. Still trying to find the metaphor in it all, but I have been so busy that I haven't had time to think. Incidentally, I've been in touch with the grand-daughter of the woman mentioned in the article. So again, thanks so much, Gina.
