Seraphine from San Francisco, United States

aww, he's beautiful. he already has wise eyes.
but already at two, they are learning to hide things and to be clever. they are only 99.9% innocent.
sometimes i wish children could be innocent forever. wouldn't the world be a better place?
i think it doesn't do any harm to let them prolong their childhood as long as possible; let kids be kids. they grow up soon enough, learn about the world and lose their innocence eventually on their own.
i used to hate feeling innocent. i wanted to be worldly. i still have that .1% of innocence (at least?), and i hope i never lose it completely.

He is a charmer, and prehaps a Scotsman? That is a catch of pure humanity in a small package that redeems any day. Thanks for switching to the portraiture, I feel these shots that are clearly (not edited) taken in my heart the moment they come on to the monitor. Hugs.

Since I don't have any grand babies I like to borrow what I see when I can see them. They are the most valuable of all creations on this earth...........
