12/52- Have lots of dreams

A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, for the 3rd year of his life.

Anakin: I could watch you sleep for hours. There is something so reassuring about listening to your slow breath. For a short time it’s easy to imagine you as a baby again. Your face is so soft, so peaceful. 

was watching a show the other day where a dad was putting his daughter to bed. Instead of saying “sweet dreams” he said “have lots of dreams”. It was something that resonated with me. I want you to have lots of dreams. Whatever they are, embrace them. I hope you will be a dreamer who sets no limits for himself, and wishing you only sweet dreams sets such a limit. 

Have lots of dreams, my love. Have as many as you can.
