Leaving Legacies

I was looking through photos while waiting for an upload ... and I found this. It's an image from a young girl who won first and second place with her photography entries at the Tulsa State Fair last year. I like it because it looks like something I would do. And quite literally, it is "me" being reproduced in someone else. This girl has periodically watched me take photos since she was 5 years old and attributes what she does to me. This picture is a legacy. It's something I've passed on to another generation. And it represents what Girl Scout volunteers are doing continually ... their skills, passions and interests are flowing into a new generation who will take them and make their own path. I love leaving a legacy!
