Nan emailed from Massachusetts. Would I be available to help her mother with organizing photos? Of course! Ruth faced some unexpected winter health challenges so, by the time we met for the first time, it was early May. I walked through the wide-open front door into their colorful and spirited home. Husband Bill welcomed me, saying that she was out and soon to return. In the meantime, would I advise about bedroom furniture placement? How to arrange bed, workspace and upholstered chair for reading? Here are some ideas. Okay!
Ruth arrived, and we ventured upstairs. First, we spread frames out on the floor so, as we went through piles of photos, we could match some with frames that would present them nicely. We separated others into new categories – burn onto CDs, give to others, and toss. Our time used up, Ruth smiled, and said that she felt well on the way to working through more of the piles.
