Dad built our house and the boat we used on the lake. A great home for 6 children growing up and living on Cass Lake in Michigan. Swimming, skating, fishing, adventures in the woods...maple trees, elderberries, West Bloomfield High School and the 50's.
Most of us have that box of old photos and negatives of relatives. Memories and stories are captured in those markers of time.
As you look at one of them suddenly you are remembering, seeing things that no camera on earth could capture. We keep them as a way of keeping ourselves, as a way of keeping our stories and memories safe. To look at a picture we have forgotten is to remember and treasure that memory as a part of our lives.
