I'm scanning all the good ones and sorting them by years (a mammoth task in itself). Amongst all of these shots is a large number of photos of the natural world, the garden, the odd flower I passed in my travels. These don't really fit into the theme of the long, unwinding family slide show, so I gave them a folder of their own.
The contents of that folder now play as a slide show on my desktop background. No matter which picture comes up, it gives me a chance to be gobsmacked anew by the intricacy, elegance, and beauty of the world around us. I'm seeing things I didn't see when I took the picture. I'm pretty sure that the contemplation of nature is a powerful cure for whatever ails us.
