Helen Lucas sitting on a park bench (Jethro Tull's AquaLung just went through my mind!). Taken in 1930 this photo came from a group of pics I got in a lot purchase, part of the Devota photos. Many of the pics were taken in Washington DC and in the Norfolk VA area. Most of them were still glued to that old black photo album paper so any other info on the back is lost forever.
(Helen was one finely dressed lady. I covet those shoes! - and looking at the size of them in the photo, I think they would have fit me!!!).
So, here we are in the last days of 2011, taking a page from Helen's book, let's all take time to sit for a moment to reflect on the past year and enjoy the good memories, take strength from lessons learned, and have hope and excitement for all of the possibilities of the coming year.
