Mother and Daughter


The top photo is of me in the coffee shop at the Fort Wayne, Indiana airport, circa 1983. It was taken by photographer Michael O'Brien, with whom I was working on a story at the time (miss you, Michael! And your wonderful family). The second photo is one I snapped of my daughter in our kitchen in New York City, circa 2008. Love how the window light slants through both photos, 25 years apart. Love the girl even more.

  2. mouse, this actually reminds me of a black and white pic of myself taken when I was in my early twenties. If I can find it, I'll post it with this one. The light coming in through the blinds is very similar.

  7. It has been months since I've been on your (or any) blog. I only meant to check in but, as usual, I was pulled in. Compelled by your stories of your family and just...softened by the palpable love that comes across in every single post. Yours is a beautiful family. You are a beautiful writer and a beautiful person. I miss you so.

  8. Tamara! I use your wisdom as my guide so often. I ask myself, what would Tam do in this situation? And then I know just how to comport myself. You know exactly what theater I'm talking about! I love and miss you.

  9. Alyssa and I are amazed by the resemblance ! I link the light with Kai's piece on transcendentalism, miss you!

  11. Hi Angella -- I think Venetian blinds are one of the best inventions ever when it comes to light and shadow. They create beautiful patterns and make rooms (and faces!) magical.

    Thanks for stopping by! Now that I know about you I'll keep checking in! :)
