This week’s The Gallery prompt is Time on the lovely Tara’s Sticky Fingers Blog.
Time doesn’t stand still, it’s continually moving forward, moving no matter how much we want it to stop, take a step back and breath in the air. Time spins around us, like a twirling hurricane. Time doesn’t like to stand still.
What I love about my blog is that I can capture little moments in time. Whether you have troublesome toddlers or teens, you will want to freeze those moments in time, immortalize them. I can look back and re-live those memories. However, don’t capture all those moments in time, sometimes you have to be in them. Experience them or you’ll miss it. As a blogger, I know it’s hard. Your memory is a wonderful snowglobe of pictures, a little shake and you will see so many.
My Uncle sent me through a picture of my dad from when he was younger, possibly before I was born. I don’t remember him looking like this, I guess as children, we don’t think of our parents having a life before we can along. I only have a couple of pictures of my dad and none in fact of him and I. I love how happy he looks in this picture. He is clearly living in the moment, having fun, chatting and I was briefly, even just for a moment, transported back in Time to when he was alive and I could hear his laughter once more.
