“How often I have gone down by the river in the evening, to stand and look to the far side, where so many I love have gone before me. When the lights begin to come on, I imagine each light is a life, someone I knew, someone I loved, still burning brightly in the distance, waiting for me to be with them once more. Then I say my prayers and head for home, knowing that my ancestors will be waiting for me when it is my turn to cross the wide waters. I walk with lighter steps and a glad heart, knowing that behind me their lights will still be glowing, dancing across the river, all through the night.”

  1. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  2. Hey! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours
    take a lot of work? I am brand new to operating
    a blog but I do write in my diary every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or
    tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
