In Response To: Re: Fortune Richard and Clarissa Richard ()
We have ALL felt the gentle (sometimes not-so-gentle) pull of the ancestors in our lives. In my case, I hear "the voice," which gives me specific information about a troubling research project, and each time I heed the instructions I hear in my head, I find the documentation I need to prove it. In other cases, I'll be walking down an aisle in a library or bookstore, and will notice a book either in the wrong place, or perhaps one will fall off the shelf just as I pass. In EVERY case, these errant books have included information about my family that I hadn't known about and wouldn't have known to look for in those particular cases.
If it weren't for the ancestors having CHOSEN us to tell their stories, none of us would be here doing what we do. We share your feelings and welcome you into the fold.
Now, it's time to get to work.
