The photo instantly captivated her. Julia stood staring, mesmerized. Mute silence held her spellbound as she gazed at the unlikely yet undeniable picture that captured her in another time and place. It didn’t just speak to her, it was her!
Feelings of wonder filled her mind as she closed her eyes silently breathing in the warmth of the room, the texture of the carpet underfoot. She recognized the beautiful music her husband was playing, could hear it in her mind, could feel the delightful light weight fabric of her gown soft against her skin.
How was this possible? Julia could describe the woman’s longing, delight, and yearning for more. She was unsettled in thought, confused yet curious. Before her at the door stood a man she’d instantly fallen in love with. Her affection sincere though he seemed of another time and place.
Turning, Julia looked at her husband and smiled.
