Making Memories


In our immediate family, the month of January is full of significant dates, including the birthdays of my Mom as well as one of her great-grandsons. Those two particular events were celebrated in 2010 during a family gathering held the last weekend of January.

This collage (click to enlarge) incorporates some of the images I captured during that 2010 get-together (with most photos intentionally made small to protect the privacy of the living). That's my beautiful Mom and the birthday-boy in the center of this collection of memories.

The quote I used in the collage . . . I won't forget you -- ever! . . . is adapted from the final chapter in The House at Pooh Corner . . . which tells the story of Christopher Robin as he leaves behind his childhood . . . and his best friends . . .

"Pooh, when I'm - you know - when I'm not doing Nothing, will you come up here sometimes?"
"Just Me?"
"Yes, Pooh."
"Will you be here too?"
"Yes, Pooh, I will be really. I promise I will be, Pooh."
"That's good," said Pooh.
"Pooh, promise you won't forget about me, ever. Not even when I'm a hundred."
"How old shall I be then?"
"Ninety-Nine."
Pooh nodded."I promise," he said.

Fantastic collage, and the perfect "Pooh quote" to go with it.

Just a note . . . I was not aware of it at the time I posted this . . . but the 31st day of January . . . which is when the center photo was taken . . . is the anniversary date of the death of the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, A. A. Milne (1882-1956) . . .
