My mother Eileen Brigid Sullivan Neylon, born Feb. 28, 1927, and my granddaughter Eileen Clare Immen, born April 30, 2015, share one basic, universal human need spanning generations regardless of age, race, gender, socio-economic status, religion, politics, health, or ethnicity. In the 88 years between them, the world has been transformed through the Great Depression, multiple world wars, television, Rock ‘n Roll, air travel, steps on the moon, Civil Rights, the Internet, cell phones, and drones. If I live long enough to be a great grandmother and hold Eileen Clare’s child, what will the world be like then?
One thing is for certain – we’ll all still benefit from a quick catnap.
