The Class
























On the day of the farm festival, the kids never made it there. They had gone to A.'s homecoming football game, at which, in Bic pen solidarity, the girls all inscribed his number, 77, on their cheeks. Later, they met up with some other kids with whom they had attended school for the first ten years of their academic life and ended up in the Central Park playground where they used to go in kindergarten, climbing on the monkey bars and playing the games they used to play all the way back then. I marvel at how connected these kids still are. I hope they hold each other close forever.

  3. They don't do they Ms Moon. They probably see flaws where we see beauty.

  5. I am thinking of Baz Luhrman's song 'Always wear sunscreen' it is very appropriate ...

    Love them all.

  7. Fabulous, fun photos! I hope they stay connected too. These constant "changings" are wearing me down.

  8. You managed to "sneak" back in on me and now I must go back to read your previous posts! You have not, however been far from my heart or my mind. I found myself thinking about you and praying that you were holding up as well as can be hoped for during such difficult times. I wish that I could give you a hug.

    These photos are glorious. Those kids...so precious. And your daughter...I feel as if I recognize her spirit. My youngest and yours must have gotten on the same line for extra sunshine:)

    So much love to you, sweet one.

  9. Thanks, all. The photos were swiped from my daughter's Facebook page, and except for the ones she's in, were all taken by her. She had her dad's camera and I gather everyone picked it up at will, snapping away. There were many, many more pictures than this! And yes, they are just gorgeous to me, beautiful beings full of light. They bring that out in one another. At this point, they are like family to each other, laughing squabbling cousins or siblings. It's nice.

  11. I love that we can connect, coast to coast, when there was a time, not too long ago, when it would not have been possible to find one another in the way that we have.

    Big hugs!

  12. So much life. I just love it when someone takes a million pictures just to capture a single evening, from every angle. There can never be too many photos. Thanks for sharing them with us :)
