passion


this is a photo of my grandma and mom taken yesterday, after my mom told grandma that she would soon have a wig of real, naturally grey hair... my mom's hair.


i thought this passage from kevin hall's book aspire went well with this photo:

"suffering...is noble. it's sacred. it's life defining. it's one thing to suffer and be a victim; it's an entirely different thing to be willing to suffer for a cause and become a victor. even though it has become popular to define passion as deep or romantic love, the real meaning is being willing to suffer for what you love."

  2. They're both beautiful (and of course you are too!). And that is indeed a perfect passage to go with the photo.

  10. Hi S+B - your mom totally rules. Seriously - what a great lady. Also - that quote is fantastic. I've never heard of the book before. Is it any good? I'm in need of a new read. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and see how you were doing. That baby is still looking totally amazing.
