A Whole New Attitude

As we start 2017 together I wanted to share one of my favorite pictures of Roma.  This photograph was taken c. 1912-1914 on the side of her family home on the main street in Florence, Missouri.  Pictured are Lena Rasa (full name Caroline Tieman Rasa), her half sister Clara Schroeder, and Lena’s three children: Pearl, Rita and Roma.

Roma is clearly having a moment here.  She’s got that hand on her hip and a bit of a pout of her lips.  I can feel her mood.  She is saying exactly what I am feeling today…Look out world, here I come!  2017, I hope you are ready.
