{this memory} 63

This is the story behind last Monday's {this moment}.

Ah, a memory without a memory. I cannot tell you what the occasion was for this photograph.

What I remember is the young man. It is I, in a favorite jacket. I can tell you that we are in the early 1950s, prior to the second grade. We are in Norfolk, Virginia sometime between November and March, and we are at one of the municipal parks, perhaps the Norfolk Zoo.

I have many wonderful memories and some wonderful almost memories. I am a fortunate man.
