ten twenty-one


Eighteen years ago today, on my mother's birthday, my beautiful little son was born. Before he arrived, I bought "grown up" clothes that I thought might eventually fit him. Every October 21st since, I've taken his picture wearing said clothes. Here are a few of those pictures...

so beautiful and inspiring...it reminds me of this other "time record" recording i heard on NPR once. this man recorded the first heartbeat and cry, first words, and thoughts/comments throughout her life on the weather, politics, love, life, etc. it was just awesome.
