little by little, bit by bit (7)

after a rotten night, my daughter has had a better day today.

the images below complete a series taken over the past week. the goal, to get her on her feet, outside. she’s taken a photo each day and created a piece of work for school – the first substantial piece of work since all this began in January.

i was skeptical that anything meaningful could result from a situation of such disabling pain – quite literally having to drag her to her feet, and then keep her upright when the pain buckled her knees. i was worried that the effort would pitch her backwards.

but she did it. she’s a brave kid, and i am very proud.

i think her images are remarkable.

    The shadow photo is just lovely and shows that your daughter still has spirit despite her pain.

    I think the shadow photo is great too: the light and the dark making there mark. Apt.
