EP (3)

This picture was taken a few years ago in Asheville, NC. I recently found it in a pile of photos I need to frame or file or…something.

My in-laws’ friend, Becky, has a charming property she named Rhodallen outside of Asheville. It’s on a little lake. The kids love to take this, (whatever it’s called…flotilla? raft? tiny barge?) out on the lake and look for critters. Peter and I took it out one afternoon and his sister snapped this picture. It is one of my favorites.

Peter is explaining something to me. What he was explaining I forget, but I’m sure it was something geeky and complicated. (hence the claw left hand) My head is cocked listening to him.

This picture perfectly encapsulates how I feel about us. On the same team, working our way through life together.

I have this photo in a scrapbook.
My caption:
"LUCKY ME! I love seeing Peter and Emily together. I'm so proud of the man he's become and of the friendship I have with Emily."

Not to get all poetic or anything - but the oar that Peter is holding represents forward motion and steering and the big stick you're holding is for stability and holding the raft in place when stillness is needed, right? Kind of perfect, yes?

S - I love it!
Please come to Denver soon. Perhaps the P4 needs to have a pow wow in Denver? I could be a special guest star. XO
