Circling Back

I saw this quote the other day and was struck by its truth…

Life’s journey is circular, it appears.  The years don’t carry us away from our fathers–they return us to them. ~Michel Marriot

Abutting generations.  Their issues, feelings, experiences may be too intense.   People pull away from one another to gain space in which to find their own footing.
They maintain distance.  When grandchildren come, they need their grandparents, and the generations are pulled back together.
Time allows us to see each other in light that falls less harshly on our choices and ways of thinking.
The line that once moved directly away bends and bows and encircles all once more.  Three generations; one family.  Individuals bound to one another through time by love.
