We’ve been saving for a new computer.
As such, I’ve started the tedious but necessary task of sorting through, saving, and deleting literally thousands of photographs.
I have a natural tendency to look back over my shoulder, and I’m often self-reflective all day and into the night. Circular thinking. Around and around. Conversations. Decisions. Plans. Details. Opportunities.
And while it would be far simpler and certainly less time consuming to delete all the photographs en masse, I’m resisting the temptation.
It’s a good idea to look backwards from time to time. I like to see where I’ve walked and how far I’ve traveled. The photographs I’m looking at captured a single frame of my life. What I saw. Who I was. How I felt. What it was like to be me at that very point on my timeline.
All of these photographs. All of these moments and memories. And as I reflect, what’s easiest to see: I’ve grown, and learned, and developed. I am changed.
Looking back. Pausing. Walking forward. And deciding about what’s just ahead …
… a new Etsy shop for my photographs.
I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, you’re viewing my first series: Once Upon a Sunflower.
It was a magical day. Pure blue and vibrant yellow. I’ve sorted, and saved, and remembered every moment.
And now I’m sharing them with all of you.
Here’s to hope.
