WELCOME TO THE PLAZA...
A PLACE THAT EXISTS NOW, ONLY IN MEMORY. . .
YET, ISN'T THAT THE ESSENCE OF OUR LIVES,
EACH MOMENT LIVED, ALWAYS FEEDING INTO THE PAST?
THIS SITE IS A PLACE OF MEMORIES. . .
EITHER LIVED IN THE PLAZA,
OR OTHER WONDERFUL PLACES, BOTH REAL AND IMAGINED. . .
HERE, WE CELEBRATE LIFE IN THE SUNLIGHT, AND IN THE SHADOWS.
AND HERE, WE MAY DREAM OF POSSIBILITIES AND THE FUTURE...
ALL ARE WELCOME, AS THEY ONCE WERE. . . IN THE PLAZA.
I AM YOUR GUIDE, LORRAINE.

CHARACTERYSTYCZNE ALNO CELNY SPEYFICZNY DLA POLSKI.
WIE NIE ROZUMIELIBSCIE. ("It's a Polish thing. You wouldn't understand.")
P.S.-- -Did you know that the double-barred cross in the Slovakian emblem shown above is called the "LORRAINE CROSS"?
P.P.S.--- In answer to those who might have questioned the absence of an American emblem up top, I thought it would be more balanced to add the Great Seal of the United States, rather than an Eagle emblem (since I already have the Polish bialys) or another flag (since the Slovakian symbol is red, white & blue.). More visually interesting, also, since most folks only see the Seal in shades of green on their money, and its distinctive origins truly in keeping with the somewhat off-beat themes of my text!
