At the end of this month I'll be going to my family's reunion in Southern Illinois, a long-standing tradition but not as regular or frequent as in years past. I'm excited to see my cousins and my Aunt Barbara, the last of my mother's siblings. We'll gather in a park in Harrisburg, Illinois, eat a potluck meal together and visit. I plan to take lots of photographs to bring with me back to Colorado.
I'm in my sixties now and one of the older generation - kinda hard to get use to that. It's been eight years since I was back there and so it's time, time to reconnect with people I love and share DNA with.
