Ah-ah! We can now see where William got the itch to have some brush on his face--it was just a matter of time before it arrived there from his right hand!

How tender!!!!!
I love to see this kind of photographs, they were an inspiration to create my book.
Thanks for sharing, William.
Hugs and have a good weekend.

Yes, Vassilis, little did I know how well Gramp’s brush, like this memory, would take root!

Thank you, Crissant!

Oh my gosh...how beautiful and sweet this photo and memory are~~~

William Michaelian said...

And vivid too, as this scene was reenacted many, many times. Gramp had sixty years on me, almost to the day. He was ninety-three when he died.

Can you imagine? Imagine! This little boy still living inside of you today.

Oh, life, it is such a mystery to me. A marvel too.

As are you, Erin. And the boy is smiling still. I take a lesson from that.

Momo Luna, I must say, you are a brave soul. But this is my crazy life, and I’m glad you’re in it, and glad that you’ve let me into yours.
