a portrait of my children, once a week in 2014
ace – I watch you watching your siblings move about, it is so clear that you want to walk. Soon my love soon, but don’t rush. You’re getting closer, crawling around the garden on feet and hands, no longer on your knees.
ebe – what an amazing imagination you have. You’ve always been so creative and with ease can inhabit an entirely new reality. Here you are piloting a rocket ship. Judging by your expression perhaps your in strife?
ode – sometimes it can be hard to find some space in this house to explore the world on your own, without your older sibling hovering, telling you what to do and taking over. Here you are hiding behind the couch with a map of the world. You were undiscovered for almost an hour.
mae – my dear girl you are so tough. Your feelings run so deep and hover so close to the surface. I will always be there for you to wipe away the tears, to hug you and love you.
Playing along with Jodi.
