On the Rocks
Tomorrow, I'm leaving the United States, relatively indefinitely. The past two weeks have been spent with my crazy, warm, hilarious, spastic family, which has been a wonderful gift of time to have before heading to Holland more permanently. Throughout my life we have tried every summer to make it to Wilson's Creek, near Morganton in North Carolina - it's nothing but trees and steep hills and baking rocks, and clear water lined with smooth stones. The last time we were there, three years ago, my sister found out she was pregnant with my beautiful niece. I brought a disposable underwater camera with me on this trip, but I wanted to include one of my favorite photos I have ever taken from that trip, of my sister and her boyfriend, carefully holding hands and making their way toward a steep but beautiful journey. Three years later, my own journey is looking beautiful from here, too.

Beautiful photos of a beautiful family! We are all going to miss you so much, traci! But I can't wait for this new chapter to begin!

I'm so very happy for you both! I'm already missing you so much, but I know you are happy, and that's the most important thing a parent could ever want for their child. This journey has been full of twists and turns up until now, but you two have weathered many storms from different continents. I wish you Carolina blue skies and smooth sailing on the road ahead. I love you so much!

How old is this post?

Well remembered and well documented / captured. They don't just capture a moment. Not just a moment. The images are fluid. There is life. Moving. Life is not stagnant. I can see they move. Thank you Traci.
