True Life

It amazes me how little children carry their own loads, of what they are capable according to their strength. They are carrying their blankets.

They each have their own backpack with more of their things. 
They have one hand free to stick into the adults hand 
for security, 
for comfort, 
for not getting lost. 
This is true life.


The gathering of cousins. At least the two on the left are Mast Cousins. And these cousins are cousins to my brother-in-law.
