I wait for the images to develop.
We began this adventure over 10 years ago. To a foreign country, where we could immerse ourselves in the culture and day-to-day life, was a summer indulgence.
Once we enjoyed the family time, the closeness we had together, we didn’t want to return. My husband and I decided to give it another month. Then another. Then another. We made the choice to sell everything back home – this was now home. We didn’t need those things, just each other. However, the children are now grown, and it’s time to move on.
Again, we sold most of our things, that first summer I want to hold in my hand. I have a lock of hair, a shell, some sand, and my memories.
Back there, in the dark, my memories lie in wait to come to light. The images of a summer well spent with my family, by the sea, and the physical images are so important to us to retrace our past and look forward to our futures.
