A Long Time Ago

It was a long time ago.
I was 18.
I had my first real job as a lab assistant in a medical research lab at the VA hospital.
It was lunch break.

The photograph was taken by my boyfriend, Hal Phillips, who is now a pediatrician.

My mother made the dress I was wearing. She made most of my clothes. When I was a teenager, I was ashamed of my homemade clothes. I never had the fashions other girls had. Later, I came to deeply appreciate it.
