Memories: Those Were the Days…
A phrase I like saying less these days. Mostly because of what it suggests in its usage. Those were the days… as if the present isn’t full of wonderful memory-making opportunities. I look at old pictures – be it on print, digital or in my mind and I think what great times…all part of a spectacular tapestry of events imprinted within – time, space, us…within each. While completely taking in the present moments creating a thread of many more wonderful pictures and events even still to be created. Yes- those were the days, and these are the days. So, enjoy your present, for when you think back you can be surprised by all the wonderful gifts you unpack.
“No memory is ever alone; it’s at the end of a trail of memories, a dozen trails that each have their own associations.”
– Louis L’Amour – American novelist (1908 – 1988)
