Easter Long Ago

The photo was taken in Taft, California, at Easter in the mid to late 1950s.  My sister and I are wearing dark matching dresses.  My mother is wearing dark glasses.  With us is our nearby neighbor and her daughters.  Not sure where my baby sister was.  Although I remember being 2 years old and living in an apartment in San Mateo, California, and have many vivid memories from the time we lived in Taft, I have no memory to go with this photo.  A friend with a beautiful sense of humor referred to those lapses we have as "repressed happy memories."

Really lovely photograph. I like the idea of "repressed happy memories." There are some moments that simply vanish, especially when there is nothing painful associated with them that can be triggered. Some days just slip on by.
