Acknowledging

Family picture

APART from this old page about my family, almost everything is private (ancestry pages too). The next week I will be spending with my mother (shown in the picture above), which is a rare opportunity to take some time off the Internet.

As friends of mine know, I left my parents’ house at the age of 18 and have since then lived on my own, expanding my areas of interest, holding about half a dozen jobs (almost a dozen in total including teenage years), and earning a Ph.D. degree. A lot of my accomplishments I owe to family and friends, but rarely does a person remember to acknowledge this.

So, just before I sign off for several days I wanted to make this post and thank those whom I grew up with. If you too sometimes neglect to thank someone, the summer vacation is a good time to make up for it.
