The Random Nature of Life (and Death)

My grandmother was born in 1898 and died at the age of 102 in 2001, thus living a life touching three centuries.  At the time of her death she was of diminished stature and eyesight but was otherwise ‘healthy’.  She had never contracted polio, as my grandfather had, and she was never stricken with cancer or heart disease, or any other ailment.  She simply died of old age as her body just could not sustain life anymore.

The photograph

My dad was hired to take this photo of my mum's nursing class.  Someone invited him to stay for the dance that evening.  This, then, is the day they met.  Mum is in the back row, fourth from left.

My Dad's Daughter

I would like to discuss photography.  When we moved to Canada years ago, my Dad became one of the highest sought after advertising photographers in the country. Any fellow Canadians who have purchased Loblaws or President's Choice products will have had his work in your home (Decadent Chocolate Chip cookies, anyone?). In the last ten years or so I have really taken more of an interest in taking GOOD photos, even though we've never had an expensive camera.  I'm hoping that some FJers will post

      Type 3B hair ... I just had my BF chop it to chin length, shortest I've ever gone. I'm hoping it just explodes to an Irish afro. It took me decades to learn how to embrace it.
