My Family

Memories and moments in history.

The Clan

My grandfather said in the introduction to his memoirs, "Ars longa, vita brevis"
Wikipedia makes an attempt to explain that saying as follows, "it takes a long time to acquire and perfect one's expertise... and one has but a short time in which to do it". It can be interpreted as "while artists die and are forgotten, art lasts forever"... but it may also refer to how time limits our accomplishments in life.

Life is made of moments and in those moments we make memories. When all the fluff and all the stuff is gone all we have left are the memories, some are precious and some are lessons we can draw from. These are some I have been able to piece together thus far.
