This past weekend we drove up to Salinas for the Sakasegawa family reunion. One of my dad's cousins had recently lost his mother, and partially in tribute to her, he had a bunch of her old family photos enlarged and brought them to the event. There were a bunch of pictures of my dad's generation as children, and their parents as young adults. This one is my great grandfather, Seimon Sakasegawa.
It's such a strange and fascinating experience to see photos like this. When I look at this picture, I can see echoes of my grandfather's face, as well as his youngest brother's. I never knew Seimon--he died in 1948, before either of my parents was born--but, seeing his face, there's still a familiar feeling there.
