You might think, what with my love of old photographs and vintage that I wished that I lived in another time and place. I don’t. I don’t do politics on my blog, but I have to say that I’m so grateful to be here, in America, now. If I had given birth 100 years ago, I would have died. If it weren’t for science, I’d be deaf. My gay family members and friends can now marry (at least here, in my state.) My grandparents escaped the pogroms in Russia. For my family, this is the best it has ever been. Some good things have been lost, but much more has been gained.
Today is Flag Day. Sometimes an image from the past is nostalgic and yet current at the same time.
