I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Slowing down time

In these last Summer days, with so much to do, I'm going to be taking it a little bit easier this week or so.

Having fun and enjoying the children before all changes again in less then two weeks.

In their fast paced little worlds where one of them will be taking their first tentative footsteps into an adult world.

The way has been paved forward and I feel like I'm loosing hold of any strings that bound us together - mother and child - like our fingertips are touching, but our reach is just out, slipping away, for the next couple of years or so.....maybe more.

This has got to be one of the most difficult parts of parenting - letting go. Or gearing yourself up to let go.

So while I still have a firm grip - before my little lad is engulfed and the hormones kick in - this is me taking it easy and trying to slow down the pace, before it is fast tracked, completely lost, out of sight.

Happy holidays.
