black and white photobooth photo of me when I was three years old.

My parents escaped communist Romania with me in tow in the early 1980s. I’ve been hearing stories related to our escape my whole life and I’ve always wanted to write them down.

This is a way of slowly capturing these stories. I’m going to post a photo a week and share a story about it.

Here is 3 year old me. This photo was taken in an Austrian photobooth while we waited for Canada to accept us as refugees.
