Portrait of a Son

This photo was taken in probably 1997 when my son was about 12, not sure. His dad and I had broken up from our 2nd marriage to each other and we needed something sweet. (Thinking back on the timeline: His dad and I were married in February of 97 and divorced in Nov. 97). My son and I often went on weekend trips, and this one was to Ogunquit Maine. Google it, it’s booful. We also went to other places; Story Land in New Hampshire, and once, a trip on the Scotia Prince from Portland ME to Nova Scotia in Canada. I really enjoyed our time away from things, where we could just remember how nice it was to just hang out together and explore. He took this photo and I like how his shadow is captured in it. There is a lesson in there. Take time to be with the ones you love, and, find joy in the midst of pain. I love this boy  🙂
