I recently completed a scrapbook for Richard’s mother as a gift for her birthday. This was one of the photographs. It was taken in 1969/1970 at Cape Cod. One of the things I enjoyed about doing the scrapbook was seeing photographs of Richard at different stages and comparing them to photographs of his sons.
This was a nice toddler shot so I went through and found a few toddler shots of the boys — in this case my middle and youngest sons, Nathan and Douglas, respectively.
In this one Douglas is slightly younger and he’s pictured at home — possibly with some of the same beads on as Nathan.
At a recent writers conference I wrote a short poem about my scrapbooking project.
