    . The girls skirt reminds me a a twister board.

  2. This day was my 6th birthday. My big brother had just died 3 months prior in a car accident. I remember that day because my parents gave me my first two-wheeler. How they managed to even go out and buy me a present, never mind plan a party — to this day confounds me. My father took me to the church parking lot across the street from our house to teach me to ride it. When I finally managed to pedal away without his hand holding onto the seat, Dad started to cry and said, “Richard would be so proud of you.” This photo reminds me of the brief flash of joy I had amid many months of darkness.


Tell us a story.
