– Moves on, or so they say. Who are they? ancestral voices probably: echoes of the past that linger on in us. I’m talking about Genealogy of course, that’s what I’ve been doing today. I started researching my family tree a few years ago. I think most people do when they get to that ‘certain’ age (though nothings certain in life itself). Perhaps its the gradual realisation that you are not immortal after all that prompts the need to search for your roots lol!
I do think that certain patterns are repeated and that the more you learn about your ancestors, the more you learn about yourself. I am part of the sum total of the survivors of Culloden and the Holocaust and other catastrophes in history. I think about this whenever I am about to ever give up on anything……… it’s quite heartening and makes me thankful for what I have got.
