Living "Ghosts" - London
3 months ago

Last Sunday, in London, England, I was priveliged to visit the house where my Mom, Sister, and I roomed for about 6 months right after WWII.

Then we moved on to Sweden and hardly ever thought about that temporaty abode again. My Australian daughter had done a bit of research and we were invited to Tea by the present owners, so, here I was back in the narrow row house I had left 68-1/2 yeras ago, never expecting to return.

Back then, the landlady's kids were Maryanne & Julian, and these kids who live there today seemed like the same kids, like time had stood still - except that my wife, soninlaw and grandson are there, too. Available light, no flash, I just said: "Kids, hold on", and took a grab-shot.
