Work in which I convert my ancestors in root, tree, branches; I sew them to the ground. I allow their existence to transcend to a part of my identity. Ancestor is synonymous with forefather, they both mean “he who has gone before, who passed before you.” The root is from the verb cedere, cessum (to walk, to march, to go).
