Past and Present

Young Kate

My ex- found this photo of us circa October 1996, when a young Katherine and her parents were attending the UBC Botanical Garden's Apple Festival. That's Kate, checking out an apple that is nearly the size of her little head.

Our lives now are completely different than they were then. Completely different than the lives we would have sworn lay ahead of us from that point in time.

Katherine starts middle school in less than a month. Even though I try to be aware and maintain a sense of time passing, of Kate growing and changing and progressing towards her adulthood, every now and then something unexpected like this photo drops out of the blue and takes my breath away as I'm struck by such measurable evidence of fast the time has gone.
