When I should have been doing something else, I found myself immersed for hours in comparing images of women. I found myself longing for an app I could use to point my phone at the photos that would scan them and tell me (from built in facial recognition technology) whether one child in a photo was the same person in another photo taken 20 years later. Was the old grandmother the same young woman in this photo, or this one?
Sorting through and trying again to organize family photos from a Grandmother I never knew and who didn't label her photos took up the better part of an afternoon for me. But I can't beat myself up about it. It's work I have procrastinated on doing for years and sometimes the time is right to do the work you are called to do.
Tara Sophia Mohr's Grandmother Power campaign gave me calling enough to dive back into to photos I've kept silent and ignored for years. It is good to try to sort out your heritage, even if you learn nothing about them and even more about you in the process.
Here is my Grandmother Power story thanks to the blessings of family.
