Steve and I had our engagement photos taken in January by Emma Solley, our wedding photographer. I took in with me the only photograph that I have of my great grandmother and namesake, Melindy Phillips, and asked Emma to take my portrait echoing the one of her. I shared this with my fellow monks & artists on my online WOTM course and really love these words that someone used to describe the picture . . . . .
“the past looks to the future, the present draws strength from the past”
