Monday Motivation Musings

How many of us (or our parents) have old photos of people we don't know?
Wouldn't it be sad if some time in the future someone found a photo of your parents or yourself and they had no name, no date, no idea who you were?  Due to the nature of technology, would this scenario even be likely?  Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and social networking had meant that we can access millions of photos and people can do the same of us.  We share what we look like, what we think, what we feel, what we are doing, what we are cooking as if someone actually cares..  Do they care?  If we keep a blog, people can also learn about us - our interests, our happenings, our family, our talents, our life.  Do people read what we write?  Does it matter if they do or not?  How much of it is about getting it out for our benefit vs sharing with others for their benefit?
Scrapbookers are the historians for the future.
Tell the story of what matters to you.

  1. I have a HUGE polystyrene box in the garage that is full of old photos from my mother's side of the family.

    And I have NO idea who most of those people were.
    I'm probably related to most of them, too.
    It's so sad, when you think of it that way.


Thank you for taking the time to share a thought with me.
