We were on the ice at Lake Wanahoo for exactly 7 minutes. Until she couldn’t feel her face and until my pants were wet from laying on the frozen water.

When did the shift happen? When you watch old movies or binge watch Madmen on Netflix, if people work in an office there’s a photo of their spouse sitting on their desk. And I’m not talking a family photo—- I’m talking about an honest to goodness mug shot of their spouse.  And now I’ve noticed a definite shift in that there are now more snapshots of someone’s children on their desk than of someones wife or husband. I’m not saying one is bad and one is good. Just that I’m noticing a shift and I’m curious why this is….

Maybe it’s on my mind because I’ve been to too many funerals lately where the most recent shot used for their obituary is from that time Olan Mills came to photograph them for the church directory 5+ years ago. Or worse—– photoshopping them out of a group image taken on a cell phone with poor resolution. I guess it just makes me sad and I know it could have been better for their families. Regardless if you own a business or not. Regardless if you’re married or not. Your high school senior photo should hardly be the last time you ever have a headshot taken, in my opinion.

I guess what I’m trying to say is this: if you can’t remember the last time you had an updated mug, maybe it’s time to set one up.
