I will be taking a break from the blog for the next week or so as I will be spending time with my family. I have a number of projects on hold—more from the Seligmann handwritten family tree, more from my newly found cousin Lotte, more about the Schoenfelds. But right now other members of my family—especially my two grandsons—will be the focus of my attention.
For the past several days we have been taking care of our older grandson; we brought him to the beach where he swam and walked through the water until I was exhausted (he wasn’t), dug holes, and did other beach activities. But the activity that charmed me the most was when he tried to stop the tide from advancing. Oh, to be five and to think that you can stop the tides— and time—-from advancing.
