Adventure


you flew from D.C.
to Seattle all by yourself
first big adventure

This is in gracious response to One Deep Breath. This week's topic is Adventure.
My seven-year-old nephew is so courageous, his first hike he led the way up the mountain, like he'd been doing it all his life.

picture's dragging me out to travel - it leaves so much to imagine what is there beyond the hill. Well done.

Michelle, this photo is perfection!! The angle of the clouds, the young boy, (your nephew) alongside the young tree, both with a future to look forward to. Just stunning!
Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friend ;)

That's a lot of courage needed!
Like the first day of school (I wonder if one of us as written on the subject).

If only more adults would whoop it up when kids risk! The kid in me wishes I had someone to write a haiku for my firsts!!!

I am so grateful for all of you and One Deep Breath for inspiring me to share my very special nephew with you and open his world up even more.

Peace to all.

I love the photo. Your nephew seems quite the adventurer. And, you recorded a nice moment in time. Keep up the good work.
