  • Part 1 of a series
    submitted By Eleanor Jones Sharp

    An amazing story begins with a scene which makes us proud of our heritage in a lifestyle that behooves us to hold onto a part of our past. To instill the view seen in these portrait prints and to recall many stories I have written in my journal does evoke images of bygone days. The pages on time spent in the days of our youth will scan and record an epitaph upon our life’s journey.
