looking back from here

My friend (Edward Viljoen) found a cache of ancient photos and he's posting them in stealth. 

This one was snapped in the summer of 1991. I was 25 and had my whole life in front of me. What I recall about that time, though, was how scared I was ... scared that I'd get old, scared that I wouldn't get old, scared I'd be alone without family or friends, scared I'd never make it ... whatever "it" was. 

I'm smiling at the thought of Edward in the year 2035 posting a photo of me today. Maybe I'll look back on my 47-year old self and think, "Dang! You still had your whole life ahead of you!"

I hope so. 

Say, "Cheese!"
