When Words Aren’t Enough

AuntMae-0796

I remember this picture as if it were just a week ago.  The pride in carrying a torch for such a time and in handing it over to the next is a solemn statement.  We’ve all heard statements like “to run the race” but it’s different when one has actually run it, completed it and bore the scars proudly.  When the race is over I’m told that is when it matters the most – it’s a marvelous thing.

 

Let me give you some background on this image.  This is of a moment in the life of my aunt, Georgia Mae Walker.  She speaks of the race and in a few words the room seemed to stop, bringing many of us to a tearful silence as we struggle to understand the wisdom that time has given her to speak.  In these moments as I look back, there are no words to recover her thought but as I peek into this moment, her moment, I’m reminded exactly what the mood, the conversation and the talk was about.  Before her words we all had our own imaginings of what future times might bring though as the brilliance of my aunt rang out we were reminded of an end that will overtake us all.

 

Moments are about recapturing the thought, the mood, the times, the feelings or emotions in a timeless prompt.  Sometimes it combines them all and more.  Many images are wrought in spaces as little as 1/3000 of a second, imagine that!  Often times we forget that these gems exist because they are captured so quickly and in such a numerous quantity.  These days we have so many social sites where they become saved forever, stored on media servers and sold to sites seeking such media to sell a product or thing.  Every now and then however, we pull out something that shakes us and in that very moment we are urged with emotion of when the shutter met with its target.  Instantly we are harkened back to that time and hopefully it fills our face with laughter or joy as this one does mine; either way, when words aren’t enough to say it, there’s always a picture maybe with a tear that says it all without even making a sound!
