The past, present, and future combined in that simple moment. She sat with her husband and five children on the cool, green grass of New Haven's village square, the same square that John Brockett, her great-(x8) grandfather, surveyed hundreds of years ago.

At one end of the green, Irish musicians invited the assembled audience to sing along: ". . . but as sure as you're born, you're never gonna see no un-i-corn."

Thanks for family--past, present, and future.
