The symbiosis of life


Mutual support
London, ON, June 2008


It's been a neat week of transition and reflection for our eldest son, Zach. He graduated elementary school last week, ending the semester strongly after a year of challenge thanks to his accident. As a reward, we signed him up for guitar lessons and listened intently as he began to fill the house with, um, music.

May our walls always be filled with such chaos, may my unpredictably cool little family always have happy milestones like these to celebrate. And your family, too, because goodness seems that much sweeter when it's shared.

About this photo: This image, mossy bark from a grand old tree just across the street from our house, reminds me that all life depends on other life in order to survive. Neither one would be as rich without the other. It continues this week's Thematic Photographic theme, wood. If you haven't jumped into this mushrooming online photo sharing experience, click here to get started. You'll be happy you did (I know this because I'm happy I started it!) Caption This is also still going strong here.

Your turn: I hope you'll share a milestone in your own life. Why do they matter so?

They matter, because we hope we've learned something getting there. See, e.g. this.

Cheers.

Really like this shot. It's sort of like one of those Google Earth images.

(that or the leftover Chinese in the very back of the fridge that nobody remembered...)

Congratulations to Zach! I love the mossy bark, Carmi. Earthiness at its best!
