My mom, Dorothy, has been gone now for 18 years and I still miss her. When I stopped at my Dad’s house the other day I was intrigued when he handed me a small envelope. In it were two very small photos of my mom (each about 2″ x 4″) at approximately 18 years old which were sent by the son of my mom’s best high school friend, a woman who has also been gone for over a decade.
Since my Dad had other stuff for me to scan, I stopped back on Saturday with my laptop and scanner. Though the dynamic range isn’t great with the scanner, I was able to scan those small photos at 600dpi and to a size suitable for printing at 8″ x 10″. I made copies of each for my sisters and my Dad.
It is so fun to see her as a young, full-of-life woman who has her whole life ahead of her. Love you mom.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
