Yesterday When I Was Young

Memories, light the corners of my mind... misty colored water memories... of the way we were...

When I was writing the previous post about Edinburgh, it really brought back sweet memories and I couldn't help not going through the yellowish photos kept in my drawer. Yes, they have turned yellow, how many decades have they been, I dare not count.

All I have left are these misty blurry photos and some vague images of my first trip overseas...

One by one I flipped through the photos one by one, I felt a pang of longing and they nearly made my eyes misty... they are precious memories no doubt....nevertheless, they belong to the yesteryears, when I was young......

  13. I'm loving those buildings behind you. But now you must be telling us about the food there, i've heard it's not the best. Shortbread, maybe? And pastries? And even after all these years, you remain just as thin, even with really enjoying all kinds of food!! You are so blessed.
