Yesterday’s Easter celebration included dinner at my mother’s house. When the family gets together, we spend most of our time eating and talking. A new tradition this year was sending cell phone photos to my niece in the City, who is in grad school and couldn't make it home for the holiday. For some reason this tradition also included family members in the living room making cell phone calls to family members in the kitchen, about ten feet away. I think we have way too many college students in the family.
Other older traditions include:
Looking through my mother’s photo albums, to laugh at pictures of cousins as babies and toddlers.
Music entertainment. Here we have Boy in Black on the guitar. His imitations included Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' and Johnny Cash doing Hurt, which is a Nine Inch Nails song. Perhaps that is why he is wearing dark glasses.
A walk. It was sunny and cool, and always this time of year, it takes effort not to get your sneakers wet. Here, With-a-Why and his aunt balance on a stepping stone.
Quiet moments. Here I am near the end of the afternoon, looking out over the lake, on a walk at a nearby state park.
