Rediscovered photos (click to enlarge)
I dug out my dusty old slide storage box recently (remember slides, anybody? :-) and rediscovered a number of photos taken in slide form before I stopped using slides in the mid seventies or so. I thought it would be fun to share a few I discovered from that time. The slides were old. Some were dark. Some had dust spots, but, kind of like going through an old diary you hadn't looked at in years, these brought back memories. Who knows? Maybe one will even spur a poem or a graphic. Our memories, along with the present, are so often a wellspring of our creative side. After all, the past is what brought us to where we are now. Tomorrow, today will be a memory.
You'll see one photo of me with the commune cat almost hidden in the shadows of my bedroom in Boston, another climbing a mountain trail in Acadia, Maine in the days before my body decided to put a halt to such things, another in the miniskirt days in Boston with my 'Jane Fonda' shag haircut, and one of the beautiful Pali mountain range in Hawaii from the year I lived and worked there. Oh, I threw in one just before a giant pastry pigout on a long winter's weekend drive up there.
