Reflections on My Nephew's Birthday




In December 1982, on a visit home from Japan, I greeted my new nephew, Ryan.














In December 2012, I greeted his son. 

So quickly the generations slip by! (This is a good thing, evolution getting personal.)

My nephews and niece, and now my grandnephews and grandniece, re-affirm my faith in the rightness of it all. They give me hope for the future.

Witnessing the procession of life, I stand in awe and wonder, grateful to have been part of it.
