All my favorite memories are "mind pictures."

Aunt Maureen,

All my favorite memories are "mind pictures." As I've hiked along through life, I've often stopped, looked around, and thought, "This is the prettiest sight I've ever seen." I've smelled the pine/pinion trees the red/black earth, marveled at the raging river or empty arroyo, and there is always another prettier sight.

But my mind seems to have infinite memories for these images.

I too love hearing about other's travels and adventures. I always tell friends that I've been around the world vicariously -- through Elizabeth - places I would never go. She goes and sends pictures. Dad relays sights I am so familiar with, yet seldom stop to study.
