Picture a Petal

In 07 Observations on 2011/07/27 at 6:11 AM

A young friend asking an older lady not to destroy her old photos:

“Looking at pictures of someone you care very much about is like studying a beautiful flower with layers of petals.  Behind each layer, there’s a variation in pattern, color or design that deepens your appreciation of its beauty.  So it is with those pictures.  In each there may be something new that you’ve not seen or appreciated before: an expression, an experience, a beauty.  Each leads to a better understanding of and a deeper appreciation for the person in that photo.  So, collect your pictures, scan them, share them.  You simply cannot know now who in the future might treasure them . . . or who might treasure them right now.”
