Just after this picture Rosie decided she was not so interested in Skyping. As Gus said, I got a slice of life with a 2 year old. Which is what I really love about Skyping -- being able to join in their life is so much more real than just a photograph can be. That said, this is a wonderful picture of my boy and his girl.
My Mom died November 11th, 2003. Ten years ago today and still there are moments and days I recall with complete clarity. Last year I posted photos of Mom at Cossayuna Lake where our family spent every July for many years. We all loved it but I think maybe Mom loved it best of all. It was the one place where she completely relaxed. And that is how I like to remember her. I've decided to post them again this year, and perhaps I always will on this sad anniversary, because these are my most cherished memories. This year I am adding a favorite picture of me with Mom when I was 6.
July 1959. Mom could float for hours - it was like her secret power.
