ughhhhh!

I can see it so clearly (in my mind,) pasted there between the clear pockets of a photo album.  Yet no matter how often I flip through all the many pages, of the many accumulated binders cataloging the 30+ years of our family’s lives’, the image has yet to JUMP OUT to say –

“HERE I AM!!”
