A squirrel at sunrise


Sometimes photos only take pictures of something that was and is no more. There was a squirrel standing beautifully on that snow, but he saw my camera move and was gone. Fortunately, the sun stayed.

I have photos of my children that remind me of an entire party, or of a trip, or of the visit of a friend. All I have is the flash of an image—that and many memories.  It might be a picture of two of my kids, but I know the other one was there.  It might be a birthday cake that reminds me of an entire party.  Maybe ask your children sometimes for stories behind some of their photos or art, and share a big about a favorite of your own.
