24/52 – Gardener

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

Anakin: So happy to be outside, so happy to sweep, rake and enjoy the crisp winter air.

I hardly took any photos this last week. I’m so wrapped up in the six last weeks of my candidature and all that entails. Half the time I can’t remember where anything is or what it is exactly that I am meant to be doing. I think it comes with the territory. It makes me even more grateful to have my boys around me to ground me and to reassure me that everything is going to be ok. And it  is. I know I have made some great works and I am so excited to show them to the world in September. But first, there’s the exegesis to finalize. And it’s so close I can almost taste it, but every day I grow a little more tired and a little more unfocused. The end is near. And how sweet it will be to finally birth this Master’s degree.
