Time machine

This weekend, I was looking for senior portraits for Jilda and me. The idea was to post them on Facebook. I started to ignore it, but the idea was to share things that lifted spirits. 

The more I thought about it, the better I liked the idea, so I went on a mission. I would have sworn that both our pictures were online, but they were nowhere to be found.

I started looking through old pictures that I had not yet scanned. Looking through old photos is always fun.

I found our portraits, but there were tons of other pictures that I pulled out to scan. I shared many of them with friends and family.

There was one picture that I came across that I had never shared before. It was Jilda and me a few years after we married. '

I remember the day this picture was taken. We'd hiked a path down to the Mulberry River and sat for a long while with our feet in the cool water. We saw a beaver and a pileated woodpecker. We enjoyed the sun and the sound of the water. It was a remarkable day.

It's funny how old photographs can serve as time machines. 


  1. How wonderful to have found that particular machine.

  2. Good stuff, and I'll bet it doesn't seem that far back. She had a cute hat and you had ........ Hair! Thanks and yes it does lift spirits.

  3. Finding a photo from that time was serendipitous. You two are so in love.

  4. Looking through old photos is fun but it's also very time consuming..hours pass as though they were minutes.
