The bracelet belonged to my mother’s grandmother,
my grandmother’s mother, my great-grandmother,
my granddaughter’s great-great-great-grandmother,
and it was made of the chain of a watch
that belonged to god knows whom.
And one day it will be hers,
my granddaughter’s, to pass it on
to her granddaughter, and she will say:
“This once belonged to your great-great-great-great-great-grandmother,
my great-great-great-grandmother,
your great-great-grandmother’s great-grandmother,
the mother of your great-great-great-great-grandmother,”
and the kid won’t give a damn.

I would like to put a photo here of the bracelet, but it is in the attic somewhere 🙂 The picture is my great-grandmother and her husband and children, my grandmother with the dark hair, her sister was blonder 🙂
