"Memoir isn’t the summary of a life; it’s a window into a life, very much like a photograph in its selective composition. It may look like a casual and even random calling up of bygone events. It’s not; it’s a deliberate construction."

~ William Zinsser

Photos, to me, are as important as words. A flash of a memory, they easily recall a bygone event. I take thousands of photos every month.  These are just a few.
