Fleeing, Fleeting


Believe it or not, this is a portrait of one of my daughters.  My graceful young lady is in the center, caught in flight while performing an African dance.

This was her final Spring Dance Ensemble performance before graduating from high school yesterday.  Her dad never had a chance to see her dance on this stage.

That my little girl could be heading off to college in a matter of months underscores how fleeting her years at home with me have been–as evanescent as those energetic, elegant movements she makes on stage, swirling with her classmates into a colorful blur before our eyes–a magic millisecond of ephemeral movement.

We are in the process of fleeing for another great adventure.  Details and pictures to come when we’re back on the grid.

Enjoy those fleeting moments.

    Love the moments … in this.

  2. I love the story behind the photo, as well as the color and movement of this. My kids have just left the nest–the subject of my “fleeting moments.” Wonderful post, and best wishes.

    This photograph is has to be a favorite! It looks like three flowers growing so fast they’re in a blur!
    It generates a dance within just looking at it!
    Best wishes~
