A Journey of a Bouncing Czech

Chapter I

I have 49 photo albums, some small ones, some medium size, most of them huge tomes, which used to fit several vacations plus a couple of birthdays. Even with the digital photography available now, I still sit in Blacks Cameras after every vacation and spend hundreds of dollars to have prints made – that is for the event of my retirement when I will, as my mother used to, go through them one by one and reminisce.

Occasionally my friends want to peruse these and I am more than happy to oblige. The other day, a relatively new acquaintance of mine remarked how happy and smiling I always looked and what an enchanting life I must have had. Well, she was right in a way, since pretty well most of our photographs were taken at Christmas parties, lighting birthday candles, hugging friends, or casually leaning over the railing of a cruise ship in a bikini with blue water or palm trees in the background. And this is truly how I would prefer to remember my life, in blissful forgetfulness of other realities.
