CREATIVE SPARKS: SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS — CONNECTIONS: OLD & NEW — MAY 4

163

Welcome to another Saturday Snapshot event, hosted by At Home With Books.

Every week, we come together with a snapshot or two or more….sharing a glimpse of our world and peeking into yours.

Most of my Saturday photos are about the connections I’ve enjoyed in my life.  This week, I’m sharing about both the connections I have now, and some that I had once upon a time that I’ve rediscovered.

First….Here’s Heather with Noah:

And below is a photo of an old friend with whom I recently reconnected.  Mary and I met when we were college freshman.  After we went our separate ways, we kept in touch by letters.  Remember those?  We managed to maintain the connection for two decades…and then lost touch.

I found her again this week….and we had a long gabfest and connected on Facebook and via e-mail.  We’ve also been sharing photos, digital style.  What fun!

I hope to now visit your photo treasures and share in your moments.

    1. Letters were so great. You can reread them and save them….and such a delight to get in the mail, along with all those bills and that junk mail! lol

      Yes…I do remember pen pals. Thanks for visiting, Joyous Reads.

    1. Facebook is great for that…I had to go beyond FB, as I couldn’t find her there. But now we’re friends there….and by e-mail. Thanks for stopping by, Kathy…enjoy the weekend.

  1. Very cool reconnecting with old friends. I found a few grade school friends on facebook and it is great chatting with them after all these years. Many are in different parts of the country now and without the computer I would have never found them.

  2. How wonderful that you reconnected with an old friend! I used to write to penpals and miss that connection, There is something special about sending and receiving letters. Facebook is a great way to reconnect with old friends and family!

  3. Facebook is great for finding and reconnecting with old friends. Yes it does have its down sides, but times like that outweigh the disadvantages I think.
