above everything

my beautiful yoga friend rosemary wanted some photographs of her sweet family before the birth of her second son.  we met two weekends ago at rock creek park and by now baby miles is fully in this world.  ah life, you get me every time. 

and i love this poem by david ignatow:

Above Everything

I wished for death often

but now that I am at its door
I have changed my mind about the world.
It should go on; it is beautiful,
even as a dream, filled with water and seed,
plants and animals, others like myself,
ships and buildings and messages
filling the air -- a beauty,
if ever I have seen one.
In the next world, should I remember
this one, I will praise it
above everything.
