Given that our family meets EVERY year (see invite to the left) I thought this might help us to keep up with one another during the year and allow me an opportunity to add my musings as I learn things of our family history.
One of my regrets as I was growing up and which has always been a source of melancholy, is the fact that I've missed out on the intricate day-to-day happenings of my extended family. Now due to the fact that, given we live in a space-time constrained environment (that is, we can only be in one place at a time), it is virtually impossible to be part of everyone's lives you love all the time. Whenever I hear my family tell of good times they've had with other family, or the events of their lives of which I have not been part, it makes me sad that I wasn't there. I'm hoping the opportunity of this new-fangled technology will fill that gap.
