Do you really mean it when you hit a brick wall?
The story of that picture is on this blog which might be hard to find unless you use the search button on the right side.
Having written more than 1200 posts it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. Fanie Lupien’s name did not give me any headache, just a little…
Elmire Brault’s name is what got me curious when I visited St. Joseph Cemetery with 3rd cousin Joe. Visiting that cemetery was sort of an epiphany…
An epiphany (from the ancient Greek ἐπιφάνεια, epiphaneia, “manifestation, striking appearance”) is an experience of sudden and striking realisation. Generally the term is used to describe scientific breakthrough, religious or philosophical discoveries, but it can apply in any situation in which an enlightening realization allows a problem or situation to be understood from a new and deeper perspective. Epiphanies are studied by psychologists and other scholars, particularly those attempting to study the process of innovation.
Epiphanies are relatively rare occurrences and generally follow a process of significant thought about a problem. Often they are triggered by a new and key piece of information, but importantly, a depth of prior knowledge is required to allow the leap of understanding. Famous epiphanies include Archimedes‘s discovery of a method to determine the density of an object (“Eureka!”) and Isaac Newton‘s realization that a falling apple and the orbiting moon are both pulled by the same force.
Epiphany that was Fanie Lupien’s real first name… Well sort of…
Fanie was Épiphane. He was named after Epiphanius of Salamis which is found on Wikipedia.
Fanie is remembered on a list of families of St. Ann parish in Bristol that I posted here on this blog.
Here is it again in a PDF form.
Today’s post “I give up!” is just a pun because I know I will never give up unless people stop writing me like Kathy did.
This is pretty old, but I was wondering if anyone has more info on Fanie Lupien and his family/descendants.
About this addiction of mine…?
How did Elmire Brault died?
The story continues next Saturday with a picture.
