A few morning snuggles today during this long, snowy winter. They entertain my request to take a few photos while everyone is cooperative and in a good mood.
Shortly after I take this sweet, snuggly image, they have a fight – the hitting kind – over a game of chess (that it is the most civilized of games is an irony that is not lost on me). Later in the day, the girl breaks down numerous times. For why: she does not get the fork that she wants during meal time, I did not wait for her to get out of the bath before I started making supper so she could help, we would not let her watch the same program twice, I would not let her have a snack after supper once she had declared she was full. I didn’t take a picture of those moments because, indeed, they are seared into my brain and will remain there, like an unwelcome guest, for some time to come.
[Note: This post is part of a year-long collaborative photography project dedicated to the exploration of composition. This week’s exploration is devoted to perspective and shooting from above.

And how is your heart, soul and spirit today?
