oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

A Helping Hand

.

Sometimes we need other people

to save us from ourselves.

Whether we’re aware of it or not.

See how she flies!

This is the picture that sparked my photo blog creativity once again - albeit almost 3 weeks after I took it. What I see is Amanda swinging wildly out over the body of water that she calls Swan Lake. What I think is that will never be me. What I wonder is when did I get too scared to fly?

I don’t believe for one moment

that youth is wasted on the young.


see how she grows

The last time I posted a picture of baby Allison, she was...well, a baby. I guess she's still a baby, but it's getting harder and harder to think so. What I see here is a girl who can take herself places. And is she ever motivated to move! What I think is she's growing up way too fast.

Babies are such a nice way

to start people.

please stop looking at that light

What I see is Amanda intently gazing into a spotlight at the botanical gardens. If I had known she was going sit down and stare into it, I wouldn't have asked her to go over there. She simply refused to stop. Maybe she wanted to touch it, but at least knew enough not to do that. What I think is this just couldn't have been good for her.

If you don’t have your own children,

you have to settle for ruining

other people’s kids.


How Time Flies

My niece, baby Allison, back when she was still a tiny little thing. What I see is a darling baby, who was always asleep. What I think of is how fast she's growing, and the now six-month-old who was just sitting on my knee and kicking her little legs for all she was worth.

Time is at once

the most valuable

and the most perishable

of all our possessions.
