I'm Amazed.

This photo was taken in '93.  It's a constant surprise and delight to me that these three offspring of mine are still alive, now young adults, on their own paths, and (more or less) happy and fulfilled.* 
They are now 27, 26 and 21 years old.

* as situation, wealth, health and motivation allows.


  1. aren't photographs brilliant!!??

  2. Yes. Such a lot more special because rarer...

  3. How time flies! If I had known you back then, I would have gladly shipped you some children's shoes. Poor little mites!

  4. Ha ha. And some clothes too? Did you not notice they are in their 'jammies? We were on a summer holiday in the campervan.

  5. Oh how they have changed.

  6. Indeed. But then, it has been 19 years...
