love thursday: right back

In our neighbour's garden.  I love how the petals look like mini hearts.  Photographed with Nikon D300, 60mm micro lens.



"I'm going to miss you."

"Am I going somewhere?"

"No, when I grow up.  I'm going to have to move away.  And I'm going to miss you."

"Well, you don't have to move away.  But you're probably going to want to."

"I am?"

"Well, yes.  You might decide you want to travel and see the whole world, and live in some faraway place.  Or maybe you'll meet someone you want to spend the rest of your life with.  And then you'll go make your own home with them.  But either way, it's okay, you know.  Because if you ever need me, you just call me, and I'll be right there."

"But I'll probably move away?"

"Yes, you'll probably move away."

"Mom, you can come live with me if you want to."

"Well, thanks, sweetie.  We'll see how you feel when the time comes.  And if you still feel the same way, I'll happily come live with you."

"I love you, Mom."

"And I love you right back, kid."

"I love you right back, too."

SongBlackbird, as performed by Dionne FarrisAnd trust me, if you like this version of the song, you must buy the album.  It's discontinued, and it's cheap and it's worth every song.
