Damiano and Oliva Genetti with 7 of their 9 children.

“May the protection of the ancestors be yours.”

From the poem “Beannacht” by Irish poet and philosopher John O’Donohue. A beautiful poem written as a blessing to the poet’s mother, this particular line jumped out at me. What an incredible way to think of our ancestors – as guardians over our lives. To read the complete poem, click here.
