So, where is home?

By Joanne Niswander

In a couple of weeks I will be back home.

Home in Bluffton.

But where have I really been for the past month and a half? Hasn't this house on Cape Cod been home, too? How do I explain a feeling of "place" that means more than one place?' I have felt very much "at home" here at Woods Hole. The surroundings and the people are different from those I left behind in Bluffton the first of June, but it's been home nevertheless. Some things are different, but I find many things to feel the same.

History from five perspectives

It's funny how family stories get told and retold in so many different versions that no one really remembers the truth. As daughter number 1 says, these variations may be "interpreted as you will". She should know -- she's a direct descendant of two families who are masters at "remembering" events in colorful variations. For some reason, though, she thought only the Steiner relatives did this until my four brothers came through with their own memories of August 11, 1956.
