"Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears..."
My daughter is a Senior and will graduate next May! We are going to miss her so very much. What's the opposite of a hyperbole as that's what that sentence is. My emotions are everything and everywhere. I feel happy, and excited for her, but also I feel sad when I remember she will be leaving for college next year. She is planning to major in Piano Performance, and this week, she received her first college acceptance. She was so thrilled, and we are too, and we are so incredibly proud of her.
If you love old musicals as much as I do, then you will know that this song - "Sunrise, Sunset" is from Fidler on the Roof, and it reminded me of my daughter because it honors the unique and remarkable love of a parent. It also reminds me of my mom and dad, who both loved musicals and this one, Doctor Zhivago, and The Sound of Music were their favorites. I could name many more. I just listened to "Sunrise, Sunset" again, and it made me cry, not because I feel sad today but because my daughter's future is just beginning, and I can't wait to see the amazing things she will do.

It's a start...
I have never blogged before, but here I am starting a blog mainly because I have to for a Digital Photography class I am taking. At first I felt reluctant because I don't like feeling exposed. Excuse the pun. I love taking photographs, and especially of my children, but do I know what I am doing? No. Not at all but I hope to soon. I know this will be a wonderful and frustrating and despairing and amazing journey and who knows where it may lead. Can't wait!
