December has been a month of discovery – discoveries of what we thought were ‘forever lost footage’ from our family past and as the day and in turn the year comes to a close, I pulled up some old snaps and crudely scanned them with my Canon PowerShot. Not sure how clear they are, but these are memories clearly embedded in my thoughts – fond memories that I look upon in wistfulness at times as I wish for the past that was simple and fun.
