Images like this are some of the many reasons why I’ll never stop taking photos of everything, capturing what I see, and documenting life – mine, his. He’s rambunctious, funny, silly, and a hambone of unmatched proportions. But he’s also thoughtful, stubborn, defiant, and a worrier.

a six year old has
complex things to consider
in rare, still moments
in you i see all
that is good and true in this
sometimes scary world
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
~Edgar Allan Poe
