After a day in the kitchen baking and cooking with my mother, I come into the guest room to read and maybe take a little siesta. There on a shelf above the couch are all the family photo albums. I pull one out... Bad move! Unless you are someone who takes the passage of time in stride, bad move!
50 years ago, visiting my grandparents with my sister.
45 years ago, my last year in the United States before moving back to Israel. I'm the one sitting and beading in my paisley corduroy dress.
40 years ago, a few days off while in the army, (ages 18).
So many years ago, it all goes by so fast!
