life between the pages

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

Beautiful photos. Certainly not hard to tell who they belong to!
They look close in age.
I expect that in, oh, four or five years, your gray hairs are going to be a little more frequent. : )

too true! my youngest three were all born in a little less than
3-1/2 year period, so for about 3 mos., they were *all* in diapers!

somehow, i figure their teenage years will be more interesting than challenging. i'm looking forward to them. but remind me that i said this in a few years!
