Reach out and touch your Elders,
talk to them and take many notes, even if what they say doesn’t make sense to you. Where did they, their parent, grandparents live, work, etc. Ask about customs, foods, trades, don’t forget to include the hearsay (it might come in handy). Write everything they say down, it may come into play later.

I hope you join me on my journey, as I recount many things from my past, and explore the many other creative possibilities in my future. – OmaEagle
