Ancestral Spirits Calling


I've been watching Anthony Bourdain's visit to Istanbul. I want to go there. The people, architecture, and food is calling me. I know that a part of my ancestral trees extends to include Christianized Muslims that were in Spain. The Moors and Ottoman empires got around. Further proof of this reality is that some of the folks he met looked like family members. Amazing how there is a cellular memory always in effect.

I know what you mean. I have that connection to England and want to go to Durham where some of my ancestors were from.

Allan I didn't know you believed in cellular memory. Learning new, interesting things about you every day. :)

Hey Kyle! Actually I sorta misused the term. It's not like I had a transplant or anything that would result in a cellular memory. Perhaps, my DNA is encoded with a pattern that triggered my ancestral history. All I know is that I want a Kebob!
