They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness and shall sing of thy righteousness. Psalm 145:7

Precious memories store
Moments in photographs
Thru' the years
Seen in laughs
And of tears
Til' there are no more
Pictures to see
And we become a memory~
A family member,
To remember.
Poetry by me... AJP

It was cold and rainy today with a temperature of 56 degrees. I decided to post a self portrait that I did last night using existing light. I wanted to mainly focus on the music and this was a hard one to do. The words and music to Precious Memories in the song I was playing on the piano was by J.B.F. Wright who was born February 27, 1877 in Tennessee. Here is a link to find the words to this song:

    "Precious Memories" certainly is an old favorite. Around here they used to sing it at funerals. I actually heard of someone who wanted sung at their wedding.

    Very well done SP using your natural light and focusing on the words to the song. I remember hearing this song sung at a lot of funerals myself. It is a beautiful song!

    I love the feel of antiquity in this...the antique piano, the old favorite hymn, and the lighting has almost an oil lamp look. Excellent work on this SP.

    Love the warm tones and lighting. Though the focus is the music, I'm most drawn to your hand playing. Beautiful SP.
