"If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents, and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people"...Thich Nhat Hanh
Hello World, we are jcp and FCP. Sisters. We live in the same state but not quite close enough for lunch. Recalling an era when the arrival of newspapers and magazines via snail mail was met with much anticipation, we remember our grandparents excitedly reading, re-reading, and cherishing every page and each printed word. It was a time when the Navy's news of our daddy's emergency surgery arrived in the form of a letter, and three excruciating weeks would pass before his parents received the word that his condition had improved. Fast forward to the advent of email when our parents easily kept in touch with their grandson serving in the Air Force, as well as another studying abroad. The Internet was envisioned more than 50 years ago but the WWW wasn't created until 1989, so our grandparents missed the opportunity to wirelessly connect with the rest of the family. Or the world. But they would have loved it. So, our blog is an attempt to stay in touch and have a little fun along the way. Just a photo to share how our day is going. And we may mix it up now and then with a little sisterly challenge. Or a theme. A little something familiar that evokes a smile, or a remember when. ...A chance to play. Welcome to our sandbox.
