STORY OF A SNAPSHOT

Jackman Maine 2010

 

THE PICTURE SAYS IT ALL

It was nearly the end of May. Jackman, Maine, and the moose were everywhere. We were sharing one of the big cabins. Three bedrooms, lots of bathrooms. Huge kitchen and dining area, suitable for a crowd.

Fireplace, porch. We went moose hunting with our cameras every night for a week. It was our first trip to Jackman, and as it turned out — as a group — it would also be the only one.

Lots of laughter shared, quiet nights in that nearly wild place. Kaity was taking the picture. Left to right, it is Garry, me, Ron, Cherrie, and Sandy. I can truly say “a good time was had by all.” How often can you really say that?

    • It was one of the rare times when everyone was healthy and could find the time to be there. It hasn’t happened again, but we live in hope.

      • Sometimes moments like that are impossible to reinvent. They happen, the gods smile down at you, and the memories are what you get to savor. Nice to dream, nice to remember, but…

        (there now, that’s the Yankee in me surfacing, we have a phrase here, the utter downer for everything from perfect haircuts to good weather and beyond: “Cahn’t last, don’t get used to it”)

        That is a wonderful picture, btw. No forced smiles, no strange body language =)
