my parents

this is my parent's engagement photo.

no photos exist of their wedding day, because, apparently, it was too sad. they had a tiny service at city hall which neither of their parents attended because it wasn't god-affiliated. an uncomfortable tea was held afterwards at my grandmother's house. she was very catholic.

my father passed away from cancer in 2001.


  1. This is lovely.

    I have a picture of my grandparents on the beach as young people. It is in black and white and they look like movie stars, except they are not as attractive as movie stars, which makes it nicer.

  2. all parents are our own movie stars.

    history is nice.
