The Gallery: Something Beautiful

A lot of it is a blur, but I still remember the moment.

My wife had survived what was a very difficult delivery & was still in recovery.

I was alone with my newborn twins, besotted.

Jake was sleeping, Ellie was crying.

Then she reached out & wrapped her tiny little fingers around my finger & stopped crying, held on as if she would never let go & went back to sleep.


Both of them.

Beautiful in sleep, beautiful awake.

As I wrote at the time “It was a moment where it felt like that up until then I hadn’t really lived”


They were beautiful then; they are beautiful now.
