Reflections of the past

WHEN YOU GROW UP IN THE SHADOWS, sometimes your own reflections scare you. You stand on the outside of your life and look inside, not wanting to stop to create memories, milestones or moments.

When it came time for me to write my memoir, I knew I had to go back to the years, the months and the days of a life that I had thought were not worth documenting in my memories. But they were there! Not only in my mind but in the pages of a life that my grandfather documented just not in a notebook but keeping every letter, file and picture that linked me to a life that I did not have.
