Part of this project is to get all my photographs scanned and identified. I figure I will also weed out some of the photographs that won't mean anything to the future and I probably won't remember many of them anyway. These are things that just need to be done.
Barbara and I were talking over our art journals one day and she described a dress she had when she was seven or eight years old. Yellow with a lacy over dress and small collar and puffy sleeves. It was like a slap in the face because I had a dress just like that but hadn't remembered it in years. Especially the yellow part.
I believe this is that dress which I wore at about 7 1/2 That's my sister and Grandma Jennie.
Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile will remember "Tuesdays With Rita" which came about through an Internet art group. I tried to bring up memories and suggest topics for readers to write about. I'm going to continue that but now I'm calling it "Remember When."
I hope these writings spur memories just like Barbara's mention of the yellow dress. I hope you will take the time to write them down before they disappear into the dark reaches again.
Your memories matter write them down.
