Turns out, as modern as these days are (and I do my best to keep up with them) there's still a little romanticism left in my heart. And it keeps fighting to bring itself back to surface, between all the digital and electronic world that took over our lives. Literally.
Looking through all my memories, I was shocked to find out I have absolutely no old fashion picture of my past. None what so ever! Everything is just cold images saved on an equally cold computer, or an external drive. I feel a lot of sadness and frankly, some disappointment as I allowed myself to be caught in this feeling-less times way too much. A little oldness is not always a bad thing and my parents prove it plenty.
They still have their pictures dating back to their school time years and even today, they still go to a printer shop and get their digital pictures done old fashion way. And they look surprisingly better than the computerized ones, even after more than 40 years.
They inspire deep feelings towards those priceless memories.
Bravo, dear parents! You will be thrilled to find you still teach me things, even though I'll be 37 soon. Parenting never ends.
And thanks mom for keeping safe the one and only picture of your older daughter, in spite of all Ellie's drooling and chewing on it. I am lucky to have this picture, even if it's not really mine.
And I am truly blessed to have you as parents :)
