Airport Departure

Airport Departure

At the end of every holiday comes the time for good-byes.

Though there is motion blur in this photograph, there was some teary blurring on my part that obviously didn’t show up on the photograph. This, however, is a perfect capture of what I saw as my children headed into the airport to fly to their homes halfway across the country.

  1. Ahhh, mom’s dilemma–we give them roots and give them wings, and then we don’t want them to fly too far. Tears are good blurring tools.
