"To tell the story of one family is to tell what is essential in the story of all... "
~ Moncure D. Conway ~
I am grateful for the female lineage from which I am descended.
Women of generosity and grace are my heritage.
And women of creativity and skill.
I sometimes forget the blood from which I come
And when I remember
It makes me stand a little taller,
Feel a little braver,
And own the turf on which I stand.
I am proud of my bloodline.
