Winter gives one plenty of time to reflect on the past. I used to wish I could lay down in a field and have everyone I was ever friends with walk by and say hello. Since that wasn't possible, in 2009 I made a "It's a Party" video to digitally gather folks together, including those already passed, to the extent I had photos of them. The photos from that video make a great background collage! This year I celebrated my 40th wedding anniversary, thanks to the fact Sam and I have been living separately for nearly half of the 40 years we've been married. Going through my father's old negatives today, I came across this old 1976 photo of a much younger Sam and me. It looked like it was just waiting for a background of memories.
