all it took

Can one gutsy question change the course of your life?

Well sure it can.  Think about it —

Will you join me?  Should we try it?  What if we — ? 

Two by two, questions and responses create history.  Billions of miniature forks in the road are taken — or passed up.  And tiny threads weave an ever-changing pattern.

“Grandma, why is it that your wedding date and my dad’s birth date are only 7 months apart?”

Devout German Catholic grandmother replies to her 20 something granddaughter in 1954 —

“All it took was one time in the bush.”

Well alrighty then.

One time.  Fork taken.  Multitude of threads to follow —

Well you get the picture. 

Er — maybe I’m not so sure I want you to — after all this is my greatgrandmother we’re talkin’ about — and one can only assume she was referring to a secret rendezvous in the farm foliage, but —

Let’s just say —

it’s a pleasant reminder that creativity runs in the family.
