Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. I had never really thought about that quote until recently when I was trying to add captions to a video we were making of my grandmother using old pictures from her life. There were so many happy pictures of her as a young woman, and even some tearful ones. I was surprised that she had saved pictures of her tears. She wasn't able to tell me why she was crying in the photos but we didn't use them in the video anyway. It amazed me at the way my grandmother's eyes lit up at seeing the pictures again, and how she could tell us stories about many of them. Yes, I love beautiful pictures but sometimes the most beautiful pictures are simply memories rekindled.
