The Road Home

Yesterday MissM and I were on the busy roads
that separate school and home.
It was late evening.
I asked her to get the camera out of my bag.
I wanted to remember this sunset.

I said
'Please take some photos for me'
She said
'It is just cars and road'

I said
'I want a lorry'
She said
'Here's a lorry'

I said
'Find an interesting bridge'
She said
'Will this bridge work?'

I said
'Take this one straight into the sun'
She said
'That was a great photo'

I said
'See those shadows? Catch those'
She said
'I just did!'

It makes me ache to see these pictures.

It all goes by far too fast.

Enjoy your half term.

I love the pictures. They just grow up too fast don't they? I have little tears in my eyes! :)

they make me ache too.

Such a lovely time of year, time of day, so quickly it disappears.

She's good, Alice! But then, you already knew that.

I think we may have been on the same road - or a different stretch of it. The traffic leading to the Dartford Crossing last night was truly appalling though.

Well driven.
Well ordered.
Well taken!

Learning never stops, does it? Beautiful.
