Author Notes on Episode 16 – Genealogy or digging at these roots

Episode XVI – Those winding paths of Genealogy As the Incense Burns 🔥

In this episode I reflect on my early reluctance in tracing my roots and the power of dreams. To having a role in mapping out over 200 years of my Family History, becoming a Genealogist and the "Ancestor Whisper" all while receiving love and disaffection juxtaposed with losing myself in a corporate space, it was through understanding the heroism and sacrifice that allowed me and my Family to persevere that I fully began to accept the role that I was told I had to play.  History repeats… especially in Families.  — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/shunpwrites/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/shunpwrites/support

On Episode 16 of the podcast

As the Incense Burns

I speak on the
role as the
storyteller
of my
people.

Being the Ancestor Whisperer –
is a lonely path sometimes.

Why?

Because everyone
won’t love you.


Sabotage, disaffection and treason
often collides with loyalty
to those who
allowed us to be.

The Elders warned me:

“… It’s gonna be some of our own that will get in yo’ way, just remember who you is. There is a storm coming… our people gonna need what
we got to give you …”

Word from the Elders…
My Grandmother and Great Uncle were stewards of our history… and they handed the torch to me with a mandate to find the others.

And I obeyed.

Take a listen to as I reflect on the winding path… one that wasn’t supposed to be.
