Literally the only personal post on my blog- My Roots It’s the evening of my 22nd birthday, also Winter Solstice (I’ts about to be a long night) and I just had an interesting discussion with someone about my roots. So I decided to post this. Below is my clan poem which I’ve searched long and hard for.
