A look at the past

Yesterday I was invited to post three images of my work on facebook each day for 5 days -- and this morning it occurred to me that I could use this as an incentive to photograph the pastels I did for a class I took about 10 years ago. 

It was great fun to see the work again, and to see it with new eyes, now that I'm a painter as well as a photographer.  At the time I thought the work was crap, but now I see it was an important way-station on the journey to where I am today.

So I invite you to take another look at something you did long ago -- a story, a picture, a poem, a recording. Look at it with the loving eyes of age, and pat yourself on the back: you've always been becoming the lovely human being you are now!
