and leap into the ripe air
Alive
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness”

This is the story of sweet Forbes and his parents, who so obviously cherish him and each other. I see strength, commitment, beauty, vulnerability, compassion and so much love in these images. I hope you do to.

Letters to Our Daughters | June 2014
June 12th, 2014

* I am so honored to join a group of talented photographers in documenting our journeys as mothers to our daughters through letters and accompanying imagery. Next in our circle of letters is Jill Cassara. Read her letter here. And, if you feel so moved, do leave some love in the form of a comment. *

“Don’t leave. Stay with me.”

Eliot.

Tonight you lay on my chest and drifted off to sleep. This is your favorite way to end the day. Lately, you need a lot of affirmation. You seek contact. You want comfort. You long for familiarity. “Don’t leave. Stay with me,” you ask. And, it can be in equal parts endearing and frustrating depending upon the situation. But, tonight, as I waited for your breathing to slow and grow heavy and constant in sleep, all I wanted to do was stay. And, sitting here, I realize that I too need affirmation. I too seek contact. I too want comfort. I too long for familiarity. I understand, my girl. And, I will stay.

Always and forever wishing you God’s peace.

Your Mom
