a superlative blending of families

family life is full of major and minor crises — the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce — and all kinds of characters.  it is tied to places and events and histories.  with all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality.  it’s difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul.
