Living Arrows 21/52


You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

– Kahlil Gibran


There aren’t many moments when I spot Max totally still and absorbed in something, but this was a rare exception! We made a visit to the Isabella Plantation at Richmond Park last week, and it was stunning – the azaleas were in bloom and the colour everywhere was stunning. I loved this moment where Max had seen a bird up in one of the trees and just stopped still to watch it. Of course, if you look really closely, you’ll note that he’s also holding a snack, which may have also contributed to the unusually still photo of him!

    Beautiful photo of Max! It’s so lovely to see them completely engrossed in something so simple as being outdoors. Gorgeous
