Chloe. Daughter. Sixteen.
"I need a hug," I tell Chloe.
"I need lots of things, too," she quickly quips.
She stands and gives me a hug anyway.
She is not afraid to hug me.
She lets me press my heart to hers.
I feel her pressing back.
To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it.
- Charlie Chaplin
Photo, Spring 2009
I took this photo for a friend.
For me, it is a sweet reminder of those
moments that just cannot be explained.
