We had to put our beloved 15 year-old cocker spaniel Fiona down last Wednesday, and our hearts are broken. She was my darling baby girl and the light of my days. The house is so empty now.
We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. (Irving Townsend)
“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” Dorothea Lange .
These photos and negatives are all from the 1920s, and include photos from when my grandparents were courting, and a Christmas portrait of my mom and her big brother. (The Brownie camera belonged to my father-in-law.) Does anyone not love old family photos?
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Thomas Merton
