I’m super excited for my first post of this project called “Letters to Our Children.” I’ve joined with another group of wonderfully talented, sweet photographers to post monthly ‘letters’ – whether it be a poem, a song, a letter, or just photographs.
As I’ve began this project, I reminded of how hard it is to put into words real emotion, you know, so that it actually comes through on paper. I admire those whose words flow so easily. I’ve started and stopped my first letter several times, but one thing that always goes through my head is a song (or two or three). Music is a love of mine, of theirs. So I start this first letter, with this:
“Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home”
(from “Home” by Phillip Phillips)
They truly are each other’s home. ; )
To them, I will say…”Though you are young, I pray that you always keep these feelings of home with you and for each other. Family is more important than anything, and I think that you both understand and believe that already. Love you.”
Keep the circle going and check out the beautiful work by Rachel May Photography.
