the very point of
us coming together was
so we could be free
We bend in the bitter wind and fight the breaking point through tears.
Sometimes laughter. Sometimes pain. The light grows dim. A deep cold takes grip. We long for change. When it comes, we feel an urge to fight it.
The wind will come. Do not struggle. Let go; be new.
We blow away and start again. We grow. The sun shines once more. Life endures.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

One of these poses was my 52 Project Self Portrait for this week. This is a kind of neat thing you can do with photos on Google+ – just upload 5 or more photos taken back to back and wait a few moments, and the Auto-Awesome Feature will create a motion file (or gif) for you. Fun! I’ll reveal the frame I used as my self portrait for last week on Wednesday, with a fresh quote.
If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I took this video of Braden over 5 years ago – he was less than 2 years old. I am so glad I have taken so many photos and videos of him – this is like pure gold for me to find again later.
And frankly, I’m pretty sure that if you watch it, it’ll make your day just a little bit better. Make sure you have the sound on!
