The Girl of Summer
|Photograph by Etsy Artist --Beach Me. Click Here!|
Lily is the person who takes the temperature of a room. She knows how you feel by catching your eye. From an early age, she knew that her brother was an insulin dependent diabetic and at five had the sensibility to run downstairs and find me to say, "Phillip is shaking. He's sick, he's sick!" She is the person who "saw" what I was clouded by and shook it from me. She saw that she could skip freshman year algebra and tackle geometry, even if it would be insufferably difficult, that she could prevail, and she did.
These past years, that seeing has manifested itself as a love for photography, and this year, after completing a course at Georgetown Day School, she is placing her eye to the world and snapping. Her first July montage features the Nationals at home, as they course through their best season ever. I did say this girl's got mad style. Didn't I?
I love you like crazy Lily. ;-)
