Wonder Struck Believers


Wonder struck.


Believers.


When Guido showed up at the Bird House, everyone was entertained by his antics, his charms, the theeck accent. But Amira and Maria were more than amused. They were engaged, wonder struck believers. And that may have been the most entertaining part of all.

Sunday, under a blue sky. Friends dropping by. Polishing off the last of the fresh salsa, opening a bottle of wine. We were felting bracelets, like we learned to do at the Atwood Street Festival. Hot air balloons drifted east, our conversations lingered over Haunted House plans, sewing a mask, felting dreads, how to operate a nineteenth century optometrist's device... stuff like that.


But Amira and Maria never broke away from a constant gaze into Guido's face. They tried to teach him things, they teased him, they adored him, they cajoled him. Guido had them eating out of his small, soft hands.

  7. Pure magic! I think I'm going to need copies of some of these photos from our visit... prints need to be made! :)

    Thanks for capturing our weekend together, and especially our girls, so beautifully.

  8. It's too true -- that last photo is a take-your-breath-away moment, a perfect split-second captured forever.

  9. I only wish I brought out the camera more! Honestly, the entire day was full of engagement, and easy going happiness. I love to take pictures, but it's kind of nice to realize I was so absorbed in these lasting moments, that even I put down my picture-taker!
    And to complete a wonderful day? Paul bought groceries, Geoff fired up the grill, William and Max were sous chefs, and Paul prepared us an absolute feast! It is already a dinner legend here, at the Bird House!
