Winter Vacation

Winter VacationCopies of letters my grandmother had written to my mother have been there, along with a copy of a letter one of my aunts had written to my mother, all of this fascinating correspondence concerning the revelation of an old household secret. I study the letters aloud to my son, refreshing my own memory with the information. I’ll hold in mind this winter the fact that my mother’s parents had been married in February of 1918, producing it a century ago three months from now.

I’ve never ever liked the notion of maintaining my photographs or books in a cloud, anyway, and I would not want to reduce valuable old letters from friends and family members and photographs of exact same to a person else’s storage black box.
