    A moving statement about the the value of the visual image. Whenever I visit my parent’s home I gaze at the pictures posted on the wall, and just like Lolita, I search for pieces of me, my sister, my brother, my daughters, my nephews, and my nieces in the eyes, ears, noses, faces of my Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and grandparents.

    I look forward to hearing more stories from others.
