I ran across this wonderful image of Rip Van Winkle over at Marsha's (Tumblefish Studio freebie) and thought it would be perfect for this week's Take A Word challenge "Men". An old American folklore tale of time travel in a sense where on old man falls into a long slumber only to awaken to a new time; his family and friends gone and having to deal with all things new and unfamiliar. I overlayed some old calendars to represent the passage of time. Background from Scrapbookgraphics (Tempest). Soft and gradient light filters used for ageing in Photoshop.
I want to thank everyone who visited me on my last post about my Mother's passing away a few days ago. Your kind comments are a true comfort and help me feel connected. My mind is racing a bit, filled with memory and now with Thanksgiving approaching, family events are all the more meaningful. I am doing a big family meal this year and although (my) family members will not be present, my Husband's wonderful family will be here to carry on the light and sharing of past, present and future gatherings of laughter and Thankfulness.
