Thinking of family

Tomorrow, November 22nd marks the 30th anniversary of my mother's death. Coincidentally it is the 7th anniversary of my sister's death. This photo was taken in March 1957 in Mexico in an adobe house the whole family built. My mother is in white and in her heyday celebrating with the village mariachis. Today my thoughts are with both my mother and my sister and other family members I won't see this year.

Wow, this is great. This is one of my favourite pictures of my Grandmother and exactly the spirit I remember her in. She was only 35 or 37 when it was taken, depending on whose count you go by.

We'll miss everyone too on this Thanksgiving! :-(
