  • Behind the camera, I am taking it all in. From afar. Am I living , or just safeguarding a moment for future generations? Am I living, or alone, watching life pass me by?

    Am I hiding behind my camera/shield because I don’t want to be part of it? Should I have participated more? chronicled less?

    Did I miss out on all that fun because I thought I had a responsibility to take notes for others? Will future generations really care?

    I look at this photo, and I want to be in the middle, fooling around with the grandkids. And yet, I shoot.

    Detras de la máquina de fotos, estoy viendo todo. De lejos. ¿Vivo, o solo protejo y grabo momentos para generaciones futuras? ¿Vivo, o ,sola, dejo que la vida me pase por delante?

    ¿Me escondo detrás de mi maquina/escudo porque no quiero participar? ¿Tendría que haber participado mas? ser menos la cronista?

    ¿Me pasaron por delante todos esos gratos momentos porque pense que sólo yo era la responsable de tomar notas para las generaciones que vienen? ¿Les importará, a ellos?

    Miro esta foto, y deseo estar allí con mis nietos, divirtiéndome. Sin embargo, saco la foto.
