{Photo-a-Day Project: A personal project that I undertake every January for an entire month taking one photo a day of my children. This is the 8th year of this project.}

      I once made a promise
      That every year I would document your curls.
      And the last few years that has had to change.
      The curls have dropped.
      Instead, you tell me you don’t want the long hair which encourages their growth .
      “Shorter”, you keep telling me.
      And I do.
      Yet this is one image every year that brings the most nostalgia.
      It remains the constant reminder of the time that’s passed.
      The part of your childhood I cling to with all strength.
      “Shorter”, you say.
      “Longer”, I beg Time.
