My daughter is my firstborn child. Of course I have zillions of pictures of her.
Oh my God, I’m not kidding. I got on board with a digital camera, early on. I have a thousand pictures of her, I’m sure.
I took the pictures for her. She was a remarkable kid, as many people around here know. In whatever case, I can now give her the pictures and it’s a trip.
This is a bit like when my husband and I reunited after 22 years apart. These chunks of our lives flew into place. It’s supernatural. The love cannot be denied. It’s like puzzle, flying together.
I’m having a great time cracking open zipped archives of pictures from 2003 or so. I haven’t got to it yet, but I have all her, “Mosta quotes”. Of course!
For people who weren’t around back them, my daughter has a mouth and a mind, not to be believed. I recorded her remarks because they boggled the mind. Not just my mind, but minds around the world. We had so much fun!
She has a Leo moon, exactly conjunct my Venus. The joy she brought to my life was out of this world.
Back to the pictures, I wrote this in 2010…
I have another person’s pictures and now I get to hand them over. Boy do they tell a story and the story they tell is so happy and so deeply moving.
How do you feel when you look back on your life through pictures?
