forgotten your password?

Let us bring up our children. It is not
the place of some official to hand to them
their heritage.
If others impart to our children our knowledge
and ideals, they will lose all of us that is
wordless and full of wonder.
Let us build memories in our children,
lest they drag out joyless lives,
lest they allow treasures to be lost because
they have not been given the keys.
We live, not by things, but by the meanings
of things. It is needful to transmit the passwords
from generation to generation.
Prodnose: So you've booked to go skiing with the Bomber again! Don't you think you're being a little melodramatic?

Myself: OK, point taken. In my defence I'm not taking him out of school this time. We're going at half term with Andy and Jonnie, another father and son team who did Richmond to Windsor with us.

This passing from one generation to the next is what is sadly has replaced personal meaning...except for blogs:)
