Today is my son Benjamin's birthday. He was born at sunrise on easter morning 22 years ago . A very special entrance for a remarkable boy. I wanted to use this occasion to share some of my very favorite photographs.
The other day I asked him what his favorite poem was and he shared a poem of Lord Byron with me . It goes like this:Here didst thou dwell, here schemes of pleasure plan,
Beneath yon mountain's ever beauteous brow:
But now, as if a thing unblest by Man,
Thy fairy dwelling is as lone as thou!
Here giant weeds a passage scarce allow
To halls deserted, portals gaping wide:
Fresh lessons to the thinking bosom, how
Vain are the pleasaunces on earth supplied,
Swept into wrecks anon by Time's ungentle tide!
Your life is like a poem etched into my heart from sunrise on easter morning .....
