I was wondering, as I looked at some pictures, about what the people in the pictures were doing the moment the pictures were taken. What was happening in their lives in that moment? So then I started thinking about it. I'm going to take a picture a week and explain the picture. It will be interesting to see where I am in a year. So, here it goes:
I took this picture on Sunday, June 14, 2015. It is the day before my sweet "niece" turns two months old. I'm wearing my striped tunic (I got if from Jane.com) and it's one of my favorite shirts. I ran around this morning with one of my best friends. I showed him Grandpa's yard - which has been newly mowed. When we drove by the house this morning I couldn't help but wondered what will have changed by next week. My grandfather has dementia and my family working on the next step: does he live with someone or does he go to a nursing home. Truthfully we've waited too long to make this choice. At this moment there are two kittens at his house (that are friendly little things). There were four, but two are gone. What will we do with them? My grandfather's situation wears on me. It's two years of worry and mourning and loss. I wonder, as I look at this picture, how much of it can be seen in my face. Can you see it in my eyes? How tired I am? How lost? How anxious?
I'm sitting in front of new blinds (from blinds.com) that we installed yesterday. They change the look of the living room. They lighten everything and make it better.
These are the moments, or the day, that have been captured with this picture.
