I give thanks to my ancestors for ALL of my life’s experiences – the joy and sorrow, the abundance and deprivation, the steps forward and the steps back. I walk in your footsteps.
“Once we reach a certain age, time gives us the features of all our ancestors, combined in a soft jumble of reincarnations. And maybe that’s what the next world is – an endless corridor where all your ancestors are lined up, one after another. They turn toward their living descendant and simply wait, without words, without movement, their patient eyes fixed on a date.” Musa, Kamel Daoud, The New Yorker, April 6, 2015.
