|Hilton Head, August 2008|
This was one of my first posts, when I began blogging over four years and 2,275 posts ago. I'd forgotten about it and wanted to share it with you, particularly since when I first began blogging, only about ten people read anything I wrote. I was flipping through photos, looking for inspiration and prompts to write last night when I scrolled down to the one above of Sophie on a family trip to Hilton Head. I needed not only a prompt but the reminder of my Sophie's connection to this world. Seizures and the drudgery of daily life sometimes get in the way of the essential, and the air I breathe gets too close. The inhale is often easier than the exhale, and these words with this photo help me to release the breath outward, to fill up the world.
Here you go.
