Trent and me at 36 & 2. 🙂
The boy on the left and the boy on the right don’t know each other. Neither one can comprehend the other’s existence. They’re both five years old in these pictures, these recorded snapshots of light and shadow, and neither of them can understand the concept of birth or death. In these captured moments in time these two exist only in the present; no comprehension of the past or future.
If time travel to the past were possible, one could show the boy on the left the picture of the other and he might assume he’s a classmate. He’d be completely and totally unaware that he was viewing a human he’d one day create. If one were to show the boy on the right the picture of the other, he’d probably assume the same. A classmate, a counterpart; unaware that such a boy could one day grow into the man who’d create him. Continue reading “Crossing Paths”
Orson and me, first in 2005 and then in 2010. It’s hard to believe that five years have passed.
A co-worker of mine made a balloon Buzz Lightyear for Orson and a balloon ladybug for Trent (Trent loves ladybugs). He’s a great developer, a good guy, and a talented balloon character maker. It made the kids really happy.
We finally took Orson and Trent downtown to visit the Arch. Despite the long wait I think they had a good time. Orson was especially excited to see train bridges once he got to the top. Afterward we had a nice dinner at Dewey’s Pizza in Kirkwood. A tiring but really fun day with the family.
Fun-filled day at Grant’s Farm feeding the friendly goats.
A quick jaunt to the Laumeier Sculpture Park.
After this weird rainstorm earlier this week (which was in full effect during a brightly lit summer day) this gigantic, kick-ass rainbow appeared. It’s the biggest and clearest I’ve ever seen, including the one we saw in Hawaii. There was even a reflection of itself in the clouds above it. I snapped a few photos which probably don’t really do it justice and tossed in a few of the family for good measure.
Orson had an earache that kept him up last night. This is a photo taken with my crappy iSight camera in my Mac in the dark with Orson sleeping on my lap with his puppy. A little color desaturation combined with a black and white effect and I ended up with this. I kinda like how it turned out. Click the image for the larger version.
