Bluebird Travels: Atlanta History Center and The Art of Living


The Atlanta History Center is one of those places where history is king and knowledge is power. Is a place full of charm, history, and mysticism. Is a place that reminds me that, in order to find the right path, one must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it.

Throughout the year, the center bring history to life through living history programs, lectures with award-winning authors, toddler programs, homeschool days, school tours, summer camps, music series, and annual festivals such as Sheep to Shawl.

If you are into photography, the Atlanta History Center is the perfect place to practice and show your skills.

Every time I travel, I always try to get down with my camera, and reveal the core essence of a place through the use of photography. I always tell my children is not what you look at that matters is what you see. I think these days people don't pay enough attention to things that really matter. They are  so focused on the small talk that they loose sight of the big picture.

As I was walking through the gardens, holding hands with my daughter, she mentioned how she wished other kids could experience Atlanta the way we do.  "I'm so happy mommy. This has been the best day ever". That got me thinking. The art of mothering lies in teaching the art of living to children...

It took a walk in the woods, to help me understand how significant is to show our kids how to live. We teach them how to do things, and show them the difference between right and wrong, but we rarely teach them how to live.

We are so caught up in work, and that we tend to forget how to enjoy life. So many of us live to work, when we should work to live.

Family time is and will always be the most important gift you could ever give to your children. It not only empowers them tremendously but makes them  stronger and more resilient.
