I just can't talk myself into jumping into that deep, wide sea called Facebook. Jerome, however, floats about there a bit every day. This week he was sent a photo of the two of us from more than 40 years ago. We are standing with a young Episcopal priest and his wife at some church event related to St. Richards Episcopal church in Edgebrook where Jerome was organist/choir director just before he left to earn his masters in music from UM Ann Arbor. That young priest, Ed Little, is now the bishop of Northern Indiana. Wow. Way to go, Ed.
The photo is interesting on many counts. OK, no comments about the length of my skirt. Just notice the hand embroidered waistband and matching hair scarf! I made so many of my clothes back then. It's good to be reminded of aspects of your life and sweet moments that have lain unremembered for ages. For inside, no matter my present age or condition, there still resides that sweet young person I used to be.
