Album: Laura

Laura - another time, another place, but here, now.

I am giving her a name because she has none. There is no identification on any of the photographs in this abandoned album.

She is such a lovely person, I have decided to make her the person in the song: Laura. She is that one who is both mysterious and essential to our life.

She is our Laura.

Laura is the face in the misty light
Footsteps that you hear down the hall
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall

And you see Laura on a train that is passing through
Those eyes, how familiar they seem
She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura, but she's only a dream

She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura, but she's only a dream

(The Great Johnny Mercer)

Laura on the sidewalk

Look at me! I am pretty!
I figure this is Laura as a child. What do you think?

The pictures from the rest of the album do not have our Laura in them.
