Once Upon a Time ......

My teen years are now so far away they seem like another life on another world!

It all seems so long ago that it is not real. The odd photo, the little scrap of paper, they don’t seem like a part of my life. They are familiar, they evoke feelings, but how to relate to ourselves across 50 or 60 years?

Who is this person in the picture: this person with hair. That was so long ago I forget what it is to have hair! And yet, I recognize the photograph and it stirs memory.

This section of the web site is about my family in the earliest years I can recollect. It is bits and pieces from a time I hardly remember. I think I know as much about my father’s childhood as I do of my own.
