About This Image

Cover of the October 2004 issue

The Internet has made it possible for people to remain close over great distances, sharing in each other's lives even though they may live apart. Additionally, it makes it easier for people of different generations to take a more active role in making health care decisions, learning about their conditions and risks and modifying their lifestyles to improve their health. Here the mother demonstrates the seamless integration of modern technology into her sense of identity by literally weaving it into a mola, a Central American decorative fabric panel, that she creates with her daughter. They share knowledge, activities, and traditions that keep them healthy and strengthen their family bond. Each generation influences and enriches the other.
