I first met Nell in the early 60's.
She was in her 80's and suffering from dementia.
She was a neighbor.
I was a young wife with 2 small children.
She would wander over to my house in her confusion.
I would bring her back home.
3 years ago I found this photograph of Nell at a garage sale.
She was young and beautiful drinking afternoon tea.
Her father had taken this photo.
I made a collage of the photo.
Now when I think of neighbor Nell I see
the young Nell.
I am glad I went to that garage sale to meet
the young Nell.
