Taken at Irvine Nature Center

Today I am grateful for all the artifacts and ephemera 
from my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.
It is so interesting going through old family documents,
cards, letters, V-mail, scrapbooks, etc. 
It makes me feel connected my past,
gives me a sense of history
and gives me a glimpse of my ancestors that have passed on.

I've always loved documenting my thoughts, ideas, and experiences
in journals, diaries, and scrapbooks
so it was great to realize that I get it honestly...
many of my kin did the same and it is a treasure
to discover the things they thought were important enough to keep.

Hopefully one day my children and grandchildren will enjoy
looking through my scrapbooks and journals some day.
