A young Kyran Brennan, my Grandfather circa 1915
I think the thing I love the most about BPL is these old photos. They are so awesome! I love looking at any old photos - imagining the life that people have lead, and were leading at that moment. What was their joy? What were their pains? What would they tell me now if they could - what advice would they give me?
Hopefully they would tell me not to sweat the tax bill we just got!
Ok, I will not worry. Instead, I baked some cookies and took heart in the fact that one day someone might look at an old photo of me and wonder what advice I might give them. I would tell them live, laugh & love. (We don't have long, - enjoy it!).
I hope you all have a great week, - full of good food, good company & some music that makes you wanna dance! You know, the important stuff! The cookies, if you wanna give them a go, are really simple, and quite delicious - rather caky and with a bit of a zing! They were gobbled up pretty quick!
