turn around







I can't define how difficult it is to have my manchild leave, how heavy the heart is and yet the enormous pride in his ability to go and make his own way happily in the world.

  1. Nice pictures of your son! It is wonderful to have the children in the house - and it's hard to let it go. It's hard and easy at the same time
    to see that they go their own way. It is not quite there yet for me, but my daughter goes offline. She begins to live her own life ... It's nice to see how she does it. But it is also difficult.

    How are you? Are you okay?

    I have not noticed your header. I hope you did not know him very long. I like him a lot.

  3. I don't have any children but the idea of having them and watching them leave already breaks my heart, I think I'll have to try and deal with that before I even think about having them :) You've captured your emotions wonderfully here though, you can see the love and the pride definitely, lovely portraits and wonderful detail shots too.

  4. It looks like a fun day together. It's the memories that keep us going even when we are no longer together at all times.
