Leaving on a Jet Plane

via aerlingus.com

I’m off on my family’s annual sojourn to what historian J.G.A.  Pocock calls the British archipelago.  To make it a perfect reverse progression of the British Empire, we will pause in Boston before hopping the Atlantic to Dublin – where the English first practiced their imperial methods, before we cross the Irish Sea to take the young Pardoes on a pilgrimage to Hadrian’s wall – where Romans and Britons gave and got enduring lessons of empire.

Please pardon a pause.  I promise to return revived and writing in April.
