A photo a day – timelessness

Even though these two photos are of my elderly parents, to me they have a timelessness about them. I’m either chatting to mum while she tends the stove or talking to dad while he’s digging out evidence of some issue or another; and it seems as though I have been doing that forever.


I’ve not tried to harmonise the light or colour of each image with the other as each reflects the light and colour of their respective  rooms. Although these were taken today, they have an autumnal feel to them – but maybe that’s because I am looking at them with 56 years worth of knowing dad and mum and am aware of mums impending chemotherapy.

No chips next week as we both go to Guys Hospital on that Friday to meet the staff and see where she will receive treatment as it begins the following Monday, July 7th.

    Memory constantly amazes me. Some event or thought brings back a picture in my mind that seems to have been there forever and yet I know that I ‘forgot’ it until now.
    Is this one of your abiding memories? Mum in the kitchen and Dad perusing something?
    I do hope the chemotherapy has a positive effect Pete.

      Thanks Catherine. Yes, indeed the images resonate very strongly for me. I do worry that the treatment will not be worth it for mum in terms of quality of life but absolutely respect her choice and will support her in any way I can.
