Empty Frames, Full of Promises

Blog inspiration can come from the craziest sources! Our basement flooded and destroyed some things in picture frames. Thankfully more sentimental images weren’t ruined — like a beguiling photo of my husband’s sister dressed in red when they were young and vacationing in Kashmir, or a funny bathroom humor painting made by my late uncle who always wanted to be an artist. He rediscovered his passion too late in life. Don’t wait! I was recently thinking about a photo I took of my sister in a black dress wearing a white lampshade on her head, for a college photography class, back when we developed film in a darkroom. I was afraid to find that image among the ruins, but it was not there. Whew.

Thankfully only cheap posters wound up among the wet cardboard boxes and papers awaiting their fate in the recycling bin.

Now we have a collection of empty frames. There is a certain promise and hope to empty frames, isn’t there? Let’s see …

Now that our basement will be cleaned up and reorganized, you may find a future blog post about an arrangement of empty frames! After all, we have now vowed to keep everything that can be affected by water off the floor.
