Q: How do you favorite a photo?

A: Do you know?

She rises from the water looking to me, as if she were some sort of thoroughbred from the sea.

When I was her age, my mother used to tell me how beautiful I was - I would roll my eyes and say she's biased because she's my mother. I find myself now understanding how I must have looked, though never quite believed. I tell my daughter that she is so beautiful, and she rolls her eyes and tells me it's just because I'm her mother.

Maybe some day, way in the future, she too will be blessed with a beauty of her own that will allow her to finally see how beautiful she herself really was.

    So true, Natalie! Now go re-read Gibran's “On Children” (Khalil Gibran, “The Prophet”)
    “You may house their bodies but not their souls,
    For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
    which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.”

    Mister Jayel - Khalil Gibran was my favorite author to read when I was 13- my mother had "The Prophet" and I would regularly read through it. THANK YOU for reminding me of something I should have my own copy of by my bed.
