The accordion of generations unfolds,
incorporating genes and behaviors that have developed over
time and lifetimes.
Some work for the next generation,
but others need to be revised,
so that talents, personalities and selves
can be preserved and thrive.
Such change and preservation
must be approached
with love, respect and patience.
Being human, we are reflections of our genes, our upbringing, our relationships, our social groups and our country. These inheritances don’t mean that we can’t adapt and change, but the process requires love, respect and patience with the generation that preceded us as much as for ourselves.
