I miss my boy..as I miss them all.
I was searching through boxes today and came across sketches. Pencil drawings. Studies of hands and feet and awkward poses of a boy growing into his adolescent body..
and I remember the day.
How is it possible that it was years ago and not Moments!?
The creamy paper yields images of a day with my son. I can see that slow half smile as he glances from me. As if afraid to meet me head on.
I see the arch of his young foot memorialized in graphite. His mother drawing his foot..how Silly. Yet we both enjoy the presence of the other.
I finish the sketch and make a little squiggle on the tip of his big toe and show him, just to see his grin.
I miss my child.

>It’s a very very long drive to my home in northern British Columbia from Lompoc, California. There was close t0 5000 miles put on our very gutsy 4WD suberban! [superb winter vehicle btw] and we enjoyed every moment of it. We took our time and saw some beautiful country..lots of beautiful country.
This video clip was taken on Christmas day ~thus the reason for the old skool Christmas music playing ..we were trying to inject a wee bit of traditional Christmas spirit on a day we had celebrated much much differently every other year.
We are somewhere in Montana very close to the Canadian border.
It was definitely a treasured experience for us and we won’t forget how we spent our first Christmas together, that’s for sure.
The weather was cold and the road was long, but the trip was sweet ~and most importantly I have my torch and my glass back in my hot little hands! and we are now back enjoying the warmth of sunny California.
