We are the composite of all who have gone before us,
and shall be a part of all who come after.
They were,therefore we are,therefore you shall be.

~Nona,

This was quite lovely! It held such a powerful message too. If it wasn't for those before us, we wouldn't exist...and if it wasn't for us our children and future generations wouldn't either. It's amazing how time works isn't it! Fascinating piece you have here! Thanks for sharing.

Nona - I enjoyed the simplicity (and accuracy) of this piece.  Very good.

Nona this reminds me of a French phrase...I'm not sure about the spelling but it is "Je ponce donc je suis" or "I think..therefore I am".    James

This came to me as I was trying to write an introduction for my family history. I began to explore who I was and how I came to be ME and what or who made me that way.
Thanks for your kind comments.....nona

***Nona,
Fantastically simple and amazingly thought provoking.
Thankyou.
