There are a few things that we do where we feel connected to our ancestors, woodworking, sailing and painting…house painting, not the fine arts kind, although if done correctly, it is art. My Uncle Bill telling me how to feather paint and use enamel on the trim because it looks better, wears longer and cleans easier. I feel my Father peering over my shoulder, silently guiding the cut I am making and amazed at how noisy a jigsaw is. Sailing Master Lieutenant Hunter laughing as I get tangled in lines of our small sailboats. Pierre following Skipper around to see what she gets into. Our connections with the past will continue into the future through fun we create today, messing about.
