these two sisters | a project in 52 weeks
October 29th, 2014

“There were once two sisters
who were not afriad of the dark
because the dark was full of the other’s voice
across the room,
because even when the night was thick
and starless
they walked home together from the river
seeing who could last the longest
without turning on her flashlight,
not afraid
because sometimes in the pitch of night
they’d lie on their backs
in the middle of the path
and look up until the stars came back
and when they did,
they’d reach their arms up to touch them
and did.”

-Jandy Nelson

the birth of Naomi Bea | Arlington Virginia birth photographer
October 26th, 2014

“Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.  -William MacNeile Dixon

On Sunday, October 5, Naomi Bea entered the world. Anticipation gave way to a relieved joy as she took her first breaths on her mother’s chest. She is a miracle that I was invited to witness. I am so thankful.

“To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
An eternity in an hour.”

-William Blake
