I spent a significant portion of this past long weekend gathering, organizing and copying older family photographs. A lot of this effort was spurred by an exchange of information with a cousin, thanks ‘cuz!

This is a fun pastime and it always makes me wonder what my ancestors were thinking and what their lives were like. Were they as focused on the here and now as I am? Somehow I think so. I can’t imagine many people spend more than a miniscule amount time wondering what life will be like for their descendants 5 generations removed unlike those of us who look back at those who were here before us.

I guess looking back at real people is easier than looking at those who do not exist… yet. Just think, I am one of thirty-two people that has begun to shape a person 5 generations in my future.
