Life is good
Seen at the San Diego Fair (i snuck in again, Thursday with Peter, and again Friday with my mother!), this photo taken by a high school student.
I can't get over the "sad old man" look on the kid's face - especially given (the irony of) the hat's message. He appears so pensive, so contemplative, and probably all of 2 years of age.
Sometimes when people ask, "How are you?" do you not say "Fine" or "Fantastic!" even when things are not necessarily fine nor fantastic?
I love the expression the photographer captured here...
Even in dark, rough, shaky, anxiety-filled times, even with moments that test everything we've got in our souls and spirit, and even through events both traumatic and tragic... life is good.
