post yesterday I touched on the fact that some interests or avocations have been passed down through the generations in my family.
Some of the strong themes in my family have included writing, photography, sailing and even computer technology. My maternal grandfather was taking photos early on his life. On my Dad's side there is a strong streak for sailing. One of my cousins has even made a career out of it by working for a yacht company.
Have you noticed any generational interests in an activity or a trade? Do you have a long line of amateur or professional musicians? How about firefighters? Maybe military service?
Tell me about the generations of interests and trades that your family has shared! I believe it's more common than we might think.
