Happy Birthday, Edie

A very happy birthday to my Edie, who turned five on Tuesday. The top image is moments after her birth, the second is me as a new mom with my days-old baby, and there's my girl looking quite proud of herself, I must say, at her tricked-out gym party. What strikes me is that she has almost the same expression on her face at a few minute's old as she does in her tiara and feather boa. She really did enter this earth fully herself in many ways--she's always been Edie: creative and full of passion and quite tuned in to all the details of the world, absorbed by a leaf as much as a book as much as the making of one of her drawings; imaginative and stubborn and one of the best things to ever happen to me.

Google Caravaggio 'Rest During the Flight to Egypt' and note the uncanny correspondence.
