About Life...

What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment 
that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce...

My good friend Anna posted this the other day.  Something worth reflecting on.
I am the first to admit that I also need to take time every so often and reflect on all that's
 good around me.  I may not have everything I want, but I do have what I need.

Memories are what I have.  Tons of memories and each and everyone I cherish.
Some of them are sad, but there is nothing I would change because each of those memories 
have made me into the person I am today.  For what is a memory today was one day 
a lifetime of experiencing life, love, happy times and yes sadness also.

Too often memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.  
Even so, would you give up on them?  No matter how much suffering you went through, 
you never wanted to let go of those memories.  I sure don't.  I can't.  No matter what. 
 In some cases it's all I have left of people I loved and of my Brutus and Shadow.

I take pictures of any and everything.  Maybe too much so, but today I look back on 
them and having a good memory I can recall exactly when and where it was taken, and what
 we were doing.  Maybe it is a curse I don't know.  As of now it is still not easy to look
 at pictures of Brutus and Shadow without being overcome with grief, but I guess
 I must really enjoy punishment because i just can't bring myself to not look at them. 
 I never will.  My Brutus is my baby, and Shadow was my little kitty kat.

Life is a journey.  You never know what it holds or where it will take you.
What we can do is to enjoy the trip and make it count each and every day. 
 Take the good with the bad.  No other choice really

Life is a journey with problems to solve, lessons to learn,but most of all, experiences
 to enjoy.  I am learning to trust the journey even though I do not understand it...
