Incurable

Genealogy begins as an interest
becomes a hobby
continues as a vocation
takes over as an obsession
and in its last stages
is an incurable disease.

And contact he did… finding his birthmother’s relatives who shared all these old pictures…

Writing blogs begins as an interest
becomes a hobby
continues as a vocation
takes over as an obsession
and in its last stages
is an incurable disease.
