MOTHER AND DAUGHTER

I've shared this photo with lots of friends, but this is the final spot. It was taken at midnight on New Year's Eve. At about 11:45 pm, my 90 year old mother shouted out from her bedroom, "Hey! At midnight, grab your camera and jump into bed with me so we can hug at midnight." So...being obedient, I grabbed my camera and ran into her room 15 minutes later. She threw her duvet back and I climbed in. We took three great photos but this last one took on a life of its own. The lighting changed on its own and the even spirit of the photograph changed. There is a tenderness that emerged that blew me away.

This is how we brought in 2011. May it ever be so...

I just found the button that enables me to see my comments, AFTER I re-enabled commenting. I'm an idiot. Imagine my surprise when I found these beautiful comments...

Thank you to each of you for your beautiful comments. I appreciate your kindness and tenderness.
