"Nostalgia"

The Sunday Creative always provides a challenge!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
This week’s prompt:
Nostalgia

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
*This was the alternate prompt for last week…I liked it too much not to use it! Can’t wait to see what you do with it!*
Nostalgia: n. a wistful yearning for something past or irrecoverable
I haven't taken any photos I would consider 'nostalgic' lately, but I have scans of photos from my mother's childhood....many of which  she views with great nostalgia.  See, she just turned 90 in August, only 2 weeks after her elder sister died.  The two younger sisters had died several years ago.   This photo, captured by their aunt (a wonderful photographer), is true nostalgia:  four young girls growing up on an isolated homestead.  "Major" was the  faithful old horse who pulled their buggy, even one day when they disobeyed their parents' rules and started for 'town,' a few miles away.    (My mother is the girl on the right.)

What a charming and precious take on this challenge. How they must have really been close sisters. And that wonderful, patient horse. It puts a smile on my heart. Thank you.
