Jan. 19

Today was the day that I decided to go through old photographs and look through the two boxes of photo's that haven't found a home. It took several hours, but I have a more orderly collection of memories. Some of the photo's were a study in family dynamics. Who stood a little out of personal contact with anyone, who stood closer. I got a chuckle out of seeing my Mother, who was not a very endearing woman, always photograph with her hand on her hip and slightly aloof from the person next to her. So typical of her demeanor. Then there were really genuinely happy shots, where you couldn't mistake the joy. And dogs. From the late , great Wally to a picture of Cricket as a puppy with her sibs. I found pictures of our cottage being built and pictures of many meals being eaten there. These are the ones that didn't make it into my eating book. The saddest pictures are the ones that I could count the people in them who were no longer with us. This  was the kind of project that you usually save for a rainy or snowy day, but it was a beautiful , blue sky, sunny day . It made the pictures have life in them. I am glad that I choose today to do this.
