Reese Relatives at 20:11
What I'm doing at 20:11 in 2011... No... I'm not traveling through time.
This is a picture of a picture... of my mother, two of my brothers, (left to right) Curtis and Craig and me... (I'm the darling little girl.) I guesstimate this was about 1972.
A few weeks ago, I found some old photos in some of my mother's paper work. I posted them on Facebook and started a conversation with my cousins and the rest of my mom's side of the family who I've "friended" on Facebook over the last few years.
My cousin in Washington state created a "group" on Facebook called Reese Relatives and over the last few weeks, he has posted tons of great pictures like this one. There are new editions every day... and lots of conversation to go along with them. Most of the pictures I have never seen before, including this one.
I've learned much about my family already... and looked at photographs and video of people who I've grown up hearing stories about my whole life. There are also audio recordings posted. Hearing the voices of relatives that have long passed has really evoked lots and lots of precious memories.
So this is what I was doing at 20:11 today.... Checking in with the past.
