    Look at the photograph
    and you will see a little
    boy standing in the front
    yard; he is small and
    did not dress himself in
    the baggy shorts, the tiny
    striped t-shirt or the small
    sailor hat, but he’s dressed
    and he looks a bit puzzled.
    The colors of the stripes
    are long ago forgotten;
    the image is black and
    white. Who knows why
    he is standing there, or
    why the picture was taken.
    Freeze any frame of life
    and so much is left un-
    explained. Then again,
    you could have a snap
    shot of every second
    between then and now
    and still not understand
    how I got from there to here.

      I think we may listen to some of the same music and appreciate the oldies but goodies, but I know we don’t “read” the same —-

      Jimmy Buffett penned “looking back on my backgroung trying to figure out how I ever got here, some things are still a mystery to me while others are much to clear”

      I think we both understand!

      I love the feeling of wonderment in this – and all the unwritten questions.
