    This feels kind of sad to me. I have boxes of those photos and I wish I knew more about those people – who were my ancestors. Strangers and yet I carry their genes.

  5. These faces from the past are haunting. Even though they are strangers, I feel that I should know them…

  7. Excellent haiku on strangers
