Went to my spot.
Fresh, moist, thick with the scent of trees, ground, clarity.
Wanted photos of the whole family, but like last year, it didn’t work out. Mia took a shot of me with Anna.
Anna avoided camera while playing with leaves.
Mia running wild, posing, happy.
Anna: chatting, grabbing camera, kicking when I stand still.
Me: Stress. Wanting perfection. Finding acceptance. Peace.
Breathe the space, breathe the beauty in discovery.
