Family Photo New Years Day Circa 1975

Everyday I collect ideas that interest me; for my many moods and other reasons.  Then on unexpected days I put a few toghter and a new story appears with this "different-context" that draws in other good minds. Everything grows organically.

August 11, 2013.
It has been so many years since I studied this picture of them.
How many years - 38 years!
I had to call them to attention, for a few moments to get them to look at me and the Camera.
Look at each Face, and think of the Stories they might reveal. Who are the Angels and who let some Sin in?

I miss every one of them, even though they did harm to me on Xmas Eve of 2008, which continues to this day.

I was no longer present to take pictures on New Year's Day of 2009. [Sorrow remains]
Were my lessons for my children, like be kind and aware of everyone and hurt no one, too structured?
My only strict command, was "stop" the hurt you are  doing to yourself and others. A Police Officer may have to stop you.
I will help you get justice, if possible.  I promise you.
I trusted Denise, my Sweetheart, and wife and Mother completely. You can see how all the family children adored her. A deeply repressed injury [Hidden] jumped up and out one day, and ambushed me and attacked with enough to rage kill me. I was lucky to have escaped, with Grace of God!
