Before your story

I signed up for Jennifer Wilson`s class Before your story at Big Picture Classes. Not that I am in the target group for this class since I don`t have any children of my own and therefore don`t have any before story to tell 🙂 I signed up anyway because I still have stories I want to tell and photos to preserve for the future. Now I need to decide what stories to tell and what period of time to focus on.

I could document me and my brother…

The old photos are scanned and in saved all over the place so I could gather the originals in one album mixed with a few facts and feelings…

Or I could walk lightly through my own childhood and move on to the next generation…

Of course – I can`t voice their memories but I have my own and my memories may trigger their own memories…

So – how was life before the four of them was born…

Hard to remember what life was like before they were born. They seem to take over our life so I do understand Jennifer`s need to document her life before she became a mother. Everyone should do that because we do forget the details.

She is looking for her distant relatives…

And I have a page for the 26th day of Layout a day…
