Inspired in part by a recent Richard Barron entry, I hereby present the second of a two-part series (see the first part). These are photos of me that tell part of the story of my adult life. For most of these, I remember the event, location, and thoughts and emotions surrounding them.

    Wil,I’ve wondered for a while when your eyes changed. Going down the pictures here,I see the change happened when you had children. Then,after a rough night with Ruth, I saw the same look in my eyes. Maybe some day we will be well rested again. :)

      LOL. A little further back (college, maybe?) my nose changed too. I didn’t realize it at the time, but it’s weird looking back. :-)
