“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu

No, the image above is not of an ancestor. Lao Tzu just happened to write about change, and the quote resonated with me. After researching our family heritages, I have been thinking about changing the overall feel of the blog. This decision comes from the connectivity among the family ancestors.
I suppose that I fall into a small category of folks who embrace change. To me, it is refreshing and a sense of renewal - like the changing of the seasons.
So, when I started to recreate this blog, I only intended to change the title and image. One thing began to led to another, and everything began to click.
- The title - based on how our ancestral roots entwine.
- The subtitle - because if family history is not recorded and shared with relatives, then knowledge could become lost.
- The tree image - wide, supportive, and strong. The little fence that surrounds the tree represents family.
- The color - natural, clean and peaceful.
Until later ...
