I have noticed that when photographs are trapped inside albums or boxes, we glance through them quickly. We may notice faces or environments, and we keep flipping. But a memoir with a photo page begs us to stop. It says, “Look. Here. This moment matters right now. Do you see how beautiful this moment was…as is?”
Today I want to encourage you to look through your photos and see where you have a story to share and to write. Write not just about the event but share what feelings you remember having at the time.
