The Past Revisited

1941 Plymouth

Friday afternnoon, this 1941 Plymouth glided into the parking lot of our local general store. Memories rolled in too--granddad, coarse tan seat covers, musty car smells, trips to the Piggly Wiggly and the drug store's soda bar, sun-streamed mornings, burned toast, fresh coffee, heavy cream, playground swings, moss-covered bricks, ivy-covered walls, ice cream on scalding summer afternoons, the porcelain doll in doll trunk (with dresses, petticoats, hats and shoes), night-time shadows flickering and dancing on bedroom walls.......

Images are powerful. They can transport us through space and time.
