Let’s talk about generations. About
generations who talk to one another. Who
would like to get to know each other better.
Everyone is aware that the close quarters
parents and children share can, on occasion,
lead to major misunderstandings and
conflicts. But if we skip a generation, we
find that grandparents and grandchildren
share a rare kind of bond. Paradoxically,
distance facilitates communication, almost
by magic, and understanding trumps time.
A suspended relationship, almost shielded
by a cloud.
