Durham Museum Statue

Durham Museum Statue

I merged a recent profile shot of my granddaughter with a photo I had taken of the statue of a girl waiting in the train station at the Durham Museum.

Not too bad a match.  The combined image is more profound than I expected.

The statue, cast in stone so to speak and never-changing, will never have a chance to grow and evolve like my grand children are doing.  The statue is what it is, but my granddaughter will mature and change a little bit every day.  I can go to the museum any time in the future, and the statue will be the same, but missing a day of my granddaughter or other loved ones is a version of them that is gone forever.

Thought for the Day:  Certain things, they should stay as they are.  You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.                                                                                                                                                       J.
