Boho Boy's mother is in town. She's been heavy on our hearts since Boho Boy's father passed away a few months ago. It felt so good to have her near and take her to some places today that are special to us. Places where she got a sense of our way of life. I loved sharing specialty tea with her in my favorite coffee house by the sea...then taking a walk down to the beach. I watched her breathe the ocean air in deeply and I knew when she sighed, she was missing Leonard. We all were but his spirit was with us. A few times I almost smelled the smoke from his pipe trailing behind us but I kept it to myself. I'm so in awe of how well she is taking care of herself through this and using this experience as an opportunity for growth. There is a peace in the tone behind her words and I know it is because her partner is no longer in pain. I looked at this picture of both her and Boho Boy and imagined the sun flare was Leonard's vibrant spirit, forever dancing around us.
