A few more from our trip...

Rowan is on the move these days. This image captures that movement for me; Papa has a hold of him but not for long. We are on the move too; a new house and new projects. Everyone told us that children change your life, but the extent of the change is unfathomable until you are swimming in the midst of it. Buying a house and moving are big events regardless, but with a baby, WOW! We are lucky to have family close enough to help us through. Thanks Papa and Granny...come back soon:)

My father in law is actually a painter not a poet, but in this image he looks like a poet to me. Perhaps it is the intensity of his gaze, perhaps the dappled light or maybe it reminds me of a photograph of a poet seen on dust jacket long ago. During his visit we discussed artists and living on the edge and how being close to that edge can really drive creativity...he mentioned that poets, of all artists, lived closest to that edge. Perhaps I have captured something of Bill's edge in this image.

Rowan just flourishes with visits from his grandparents. My in-laws stayed with us for a week helping us move into our new house and giving us some time to unpack. Rowan started all sorts of new things while they were here. During his time with Granny on the front porch bathed in the scent of orange blossoms, Rowan started sitting up on his own and mastered pulling himself into standing. He even started learning to fall- cute little plops. I wish all of our family was close by because Rowan is just so happy with all the love and attention. Luckily I think we can expect more visits from Granny and Papa soon!

My husband has his mother's eyes. They are big and beautiful and they see things others don't. My mother in law sees through the haze that distorts the views of so many of us. She can size up any situation from complex family relationships to home renovation projects and see exactly what is going on and what to do about it. As someone who is in a perpetual fog (but hey, there a good photos to be made in fog:) I admire such clear vision and decision making.
