Change ...

 
“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.
Time is a test of knowledge, so they say. Time will be a test of how this change affects the blog stats and readership. 

Until later ...
