Coming across this picture today brought back a million memories
of years past
of a hopeful future.
Taken in Ireland at a wedding (the hat should be the giveaway that it wasn’t here in the States) I was still wide eyed and innocent of much in the world.
Though many (many) years have past and I have learned much and weathered much, I find that am still innocent of much as well. I’m not sure if that is a good or bad thing but it is me. And I suppose I would rather view the world with a bit of wonder and some innocence than to become cynical and jaded
and without joy.
I think I will keep that girl. She knows what’s important.
