5 minutes - and they had fun doing it - then we had dinner and LR conversation.

Clearly just a snap from a daughter’s phone.

We’re an example of people who have kept decades of photos documenting our marriage and children growing. We have ten feet of shelving with albums of 4x6 prints 6 to a page with my wife’s notes below each one. She currently blogs daily, often scanning one of those prints and adding it to the blog to illustrate her commentary, usually about the nature of change and the passing of time, or just for the fun of seeeing us in younger days. We continue to add prints from phones (the contemporary automatic snapshot camera) and cameras.

Most of these arn’t art - they’re just snaps of people at places, but they’re valuable. We booth have inherited portraits and prints created as early as the 1870’s and into the 1980’s. They illustrate the stories of people and places told by our grandparents and by us to our children. They give us a sense of family, and of place in the river of time.

I should also say at the time we took one or two photos and simply enjoyed the rest of the outing or party together, but the photos do anchor the memories.

I’m not a fan of preachy media in general telling people why they shouldn’t do whatever it is they do. Concern Trolling seems to be intentional; it is corrosive, judgemental and demeaning. Next step is to simply compel “good” behaviors.
