I have been stepping through one grand gate after another enjoying breathtakingly beautiful gardens.
This one is at the Oxford University in England.
Oxford began to flourish in 1167 when the English king, Henry 11 ordered all students and scholars in France to return home.
The dining hall and the stairway were used in the filming of Harry Potter. It was hard to capture a good picture while on a tour with many others. All I seemed to get were heads and sneakers.
In 1968 President Bill Clinton won a Rhodes Scholarship and with that the opportunity to study at Oxford where he studied government and played rugby.
And I, just finished walking through the halls and grand buildings and in the garden and my mind is full, perhaps not with the wisdom of what so many others have learned in this place but full no less of appreciation for the experience.
