As seems to be my theme lately, my best shot from the last week is one that has less to do with the composition and a lot more to do with the subject.
This is Lauren, all bundled up and enjoying a visit from a horse. But what makes it so special to me is that she was there at all. Lauren has cancer, and the prognosis isn't great. I remember hearing the news and (having a healthcare background) knowing what it all meant - and it didn't mean anything good. And when I looked at her, I thought of all the things that she'd miss - turning 30, growing old, the magic of a million every day moments. The news came in July, and I was prepared for a quick battle that didn't end well - because she didn't just need treatment, she needed a miracle.
May 2008 be a year filled with friends, loved ones, laughter, magic, and miracles! Happy New Year!
