A couple of posts back I wrote about a moment of connection, joy and delight between father and daughter that can expand to last a life time (A Magic Summer Evening Long Ago).
Then by twitter I received this wonderful photograph which captures so perfectly what I stumbled to express in words. The very moment of shared recognition.
What a lovely picture. I am without words.
The photograph is by Natasha Badhwar, a writer, teacher and film-maker who tweets with astonishing clarity and beauty. If you are not already following her you should seriously consider it. Your life would be enriched. @natashabadhwar.
She has kindly allowed me to share this picture with you.
I am lucky enough to have a picture of such a moment between my own daughter and I, when she was very young. You can find it here.
