Medium

Medium

“I’m not little, I’m medium!” with feet planted, you declare to those at the playground who would exclude the ‘little brother.’   Big squeezes, kisses rain upon your cheeks, rosy from outside play. Big squeeze, big squeeze, then: “Daddy, that’s too hard! I’m medium.”   Dogs on leashes, small dogs – these don’t frighten the medium … Continue reading

Jungle creatures

  I happened upon these charming jungle creatures today, at an acquaintance’s home. During our meeting we had a few moments of silence, and I took these shots while the light was just right. This post is part of a new series, February Beautiful, in which I notice beautiful things.
