Here's to the new year, in which I will hopefully become a "professional" - that's the goal, and I look forward to making it count.
I miss you so much, my dear baby; thank you for being the inspiration for so much love, laughter and a new found simplicity of life that makes my eyes well up every time I remember it was all from you. Thank you for these gifts and for giving me the chance to meet and photograph the souls such as yours, the ones worth knowing. True to form, you are still giving - even after you have gone.
To 2009! Make it a great one.
