six years ago today i gave birth to my sweet little son….i remember when the doctor told me i was having a little boy…i was so happy & yet a bit concerned….what did i know about boys?? how could i raise a man?? yet as they placed this beautiful boy into my arms, my heart melted around him & i knew he would teach me everything i would need to know….he is miraculous….funny & strong….he can play endlessly in the dirt & loves to curl up in my lap and touch a single strand of my hair….he does it with such gentle indifference, as if it belongs to him….i secretly think he’ll fall in love with a girl with long dark hair…he’ll just feel at home with her….and i will smile & always remember the boy who absently reached for my hair to twirl in his fingers….his secret’s safe with me….i love to watch him run like the wind & explain the incredible journeys his toy cars go on…he has taught me everything i need to know about boys & more…his heart is full of emotions that his mind doesn’t always understand…but they are there, quietly, distinctly beneath the surface…my little sweet prince.


a little more sweetness...

    Beautiful storyboard Elizabeth. Love the shallow depth of field that you do - very "signature"... :o)
    Ever thought about doing a workshop down here in New Zealand? We'd love to have you here!
