P.S. On watching my daughter learn about her Finnish great-great-grandparents from my father: “There is an old proverb: “A tree with strong roots laughs at storms.” I don’t think anyone is laughing at the 2020 tempest, but I couldn’t help but think, as I looked at the stern set of my great-grandmother Susana’s countenance, that her sisu might be part of the reason we are still afloat in these parts.” More on sisu here.
P.P.S. The silliness of my teen years.
