The forest speaks

There are times when clarity comes from those darkened moments.  Like a seed hiding within its concealed shell, light eventually penetrates the hardened exterior and transparency bursts open into the waiting sunlight.  We shed our old skin, and step within a new.
When the soles of your feet are all cried out from the journey that brought you here, you stop for a while, breathe, and notice that within that absence a change occurred.  We are as mirrors for one another, reflecting thoughts and safeguarding against conspiracies.
Place your hand against the body of this living entity, and feel its breath.  
Mirrors we are.  We can take so much more than we think we can take

Hatami Happy Time

A couple of months ago, Jesse graced the lives of Anisa, Ryan and Zane, and brought a greater happiness to all of those around him.  During these past couple months, Bobby and I have had such pleasure being around the Hatami's and their growing family and being amazed by the grace by which they are raising their children in this world.  We wanted to give them a gift that they would hopefully be able to cherish for many more years to come, as their two sons grow older and wiser, and shed the skins of their childhood.  Memories and images help keep those special moments alive.
There are many images to come, but I just wanted to share one of my favourite images from our time with them all today.  We were capturing a moment between Anisa, Ryan and Jesse when Zane came running up to us all with a little gift of bark for all to keep, and place within our pockets to preserve.
Such a fun day!

The Willow Tree

Our last night with Kalinz and Luke, and my last chance to see little Willow for several months.  The next time we see her, she's going to have changed so much.  Preserving moments laced with laughter.  Love her so much.
