The best things in life are the people you love, the places you go and the memories you make.
by Skip Cohen
Somebody recently asked me, "So, what do you miss most during the pandemic?" My answer was simple, "Bumping into friends, literally!"
I'm not sure when this image was captured. I know it was at WPPI, and we'd all caught up for drinks, or maybe it was dinner. It starts with Roberto and Kim Valenzuela, my wife Sheila and Michele Celentano. Then me in the back row with Gustavo Fernández.
But Throwback Thursday isn't about accuracy for the date of capture, but the memories an image brings back. It's all about the smile it puts on your face and in your heart. Yeah, I get pretty sappy these days, but it's images like this that keep me focused on getting through today's challenges and back to time with friends.
Just taking the time to write this post and share the grab-shot is like an emotional vitamin to start my day! My suggestion is to take 15 minutes right now. Stop what you're working on and find that file, drawer, box, or album of old photographs. And like a fine wine, find a great image and savor the memories.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
