Lightly child, lightly.


The way ‘getting better’ can be an unfolding
The covers pulled back,
the light coming in

  4. You must have fun choosing images to go with your posts. I know I did when I found them by googling. Now I use only my own photographs, and sometimes it’s challenging finding just the right one! ❤
