Finding Your Family Tree in the Palm of Your Hand

“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

Some times the strangest things happen. I was just over at, pondering whether it would be worth my while and money to pay the fees to help trace my family tree. I have been thinking about this for some time now and often talk to my mom about what she remembers. I think that it's time to take the next step. I would love to get to know some of those people who are in the palm of my hand!
