That is a photo of me in November 2009 at the Belfast Eye - normally I don't buy those photos they take of you, but I thought it was a pretty good picture of me (a rarity - I'm not particularly photogenic) so I sprang for it :-D
It's in front of a collage that I made - I make them often :-) This one is important to me - among the magazine cutouts are my mom (in the middle with the red hair - my favorite photo of her, it's one I took). Her mom, my grandmother, as a young woman, is above her in the right-hand corner. They are both gone now, and so I like that they are resting on a shelf in my office where I see them every day :-)
I am a first-generation American - My grandmother and my mom were born in Belfast. I visited there for the first time in November 2009. I felt so very much at home . . . someday I will go back again for a longer visit.
