  6. The boy is indeed wonderful and special, but the woman who could recognize and capture such a moment in a photograph is even moreso.

  7. life offers itself ... and then there is this beautiful gesture of reaching into the light, to touch ... this is all, this is the essence!

  8. the beauty of this photograph for me, is that i did not ask the boy to pause in all of his busyness to note the green life. i had simply paused to see him, and he had simply paused to see the life. it all happened so naturally. (there was a sad time in my life when i would have asked for him to pause. it makes my stomach a little sick to think about it, living to pose instead of living to see.)

    thank you for pausing to see me:)
