I don’t understand the phrase “family-time”. I can’t imagine a life disconnected; tuning out and stumbling in on a holiday’s eve. It is of primary importance for the young to spend time with the elderly. Their stories are our stories. We are the keepers of our own legacies.

Their words and smiles are like the sound of a childhood wind-up-doll playing out it’s tune; its clock-work soul echoes an eternal loop playing in and out of time, never knowing when or where the last note will fall.

And yet the music plays on in our hearts, forever…
