Aunt Polly Meinzen


Aunt Polly looks young and fresh in this photo. Not as I remember her.

I love looking at photos of youthful people. They often have such clear, innocent, pure eyes. Fresh, joyful, full of expectation and anticipation for the future. Older eyes sometimes seem harder, sadder. They have a knowledge of the realities of life. They seem to reflect the realization that life doesn't go as one imagined it. It's a rare person (maybe someone who's senile?) whose aged eyes can reflect the innocence and joy of youth.

I like this photo of Aunt Polly. I wish she'd finished closer to where she started.

Pauline Mary Meinzen was born on 27 December 1927 and passed away 21 May 2005. She was the daughter of William Carl Robert and Emma (Bickerstaff) Meinzen. She ignored "Pauline" and preferred to be called "Polly."
