Here's to all mothers. This is the photo that moves me the most over the last few days. A moment of routine life is invariably my favorite. I have a number of shots of MLC this weekend for my "portrait a week series", but after a long day, this is what it comes down to . . . . day in and day out. Now it's bath time and then bed time . . . it's always something. I pull my weight, but fatherhood is different I think. I've been pretty deeply moved by my observation of motherhood over the last 5 or 6 months. It really is beautiful to watch. It requires at least 10 times the effort I imagined it might. It's full of marvelous joy of course, but it really is never ending in a way that I couldn't have imagined. It's primal. When all else won't satisfy, it's mom, and if that doesn't work, well . . .
