Two weeks ago I was in Florida tending to the increasing needs of my father, who's now 89 years old. While there, he asked me to go through his stuff and organize things.
I found old photographs I'd never seen before, including the one below. It depicts me half a lifetime ago -- literally. The picture was taken 31 years ago when I was 31 years old.
Looking at your younger self certainly causes one to reflect.
The woman next to me is Maura, my first love, with whom I lived for twenty years. I've written here about Maura before: she currently lives in Wales (U.K.) where she's continuing her career as a fine art painter.
Awwwww, look at you!!!!!! And Maura- what a beautiful lady!ReplyDelete
Thank you! She lives closer to you than me these days. :)Delete
Aw, you look amazing! What a cool picture!ReplyDelete
You still carry that young twinkle in your eyes today. ;)ReplyDelete
It's always been there and probably always will be. :)Delete
Very recognizably you, and Maura is a natural beauty! xxxReplyDelete
You guys haven't changed a bit!ReplyDelete
That's what I think! Thanks for reassuring me I'm not vain. :)Delete
Awww, so neat! I love stumbling across photo albums and seeing younger me. You look fantastic <3ReplyDelete
I just Love finding blasts from the past that I've never seen before. When I was going thru my Dad's things after he passed, I found so many photographs I'd never seen, taken so many years ago... my Brother, the Photographer, let me keep all the photos since I tend to be the Keeper of the Past.ReplyDelete
