The old ways. Saigon 1960s. Memories of Vietnam

Central to the home in Vietnam was the family alter.
Central also to the family was a respect for the older generations.
This applied to both the living and the dead.

In our exile in France we still have a family alter.
It maintains a certain stability in life.
Even when living under different cultures, as Churchil once said, 'If you don't know where you're coming from you don't know where you're going'.
