I have only 1 photo of myself as a baby because of shipping and storage problems during moves. I have just that one photo as evidence I ever was under 3 years old. I mourn the memories my family lost.
There is only one TV commercial that has ever made me flat-out cry. Kodak's new ones:
"Shh, can you hear them? The pictures are talking, but you have to be quiet.
What are they saying?
They're saying keep me.
The pictures are saying keep me?
Protect me. Share me.
Keep me...protect me...share me...and I will live forever."
And then the old man is looking at an old picture of a young woman, his long-lost wife or mother.
I'm tearing up just remembering it.
