memories, once removed


I just returned from a wonderful family reunion in New Jersey - a gathering of uncles, aunties, grandparents, cousins, spouses, second cousins (or is that cousins once removed?) - with lots of food, kids running around, adults drinking wine, old stories being told, and lots and lots of laughing.

We spent some time at my Uncle Tom and Auntie Jan's house (above), which, like my own childhood home, is largely the way I remember it as a kid. I love that my young nephews can experience (and later remember) these places in largely the same way that their parents and I did.

In our quickly changing visual landscape, that seems precious to me.
