Meeting Ellie

We’ve landed in Perth to spend a long weekend with Ellie, my ‘new-est’ grand daughter, now 17 days old, and of course her mum (Amy) and dad (Mike).

The photos are when Ellie and I first met; our first conversation – what a treat!

And now, it’s 6am, Ellie is still asleep. So we rest in anticipation of another day with Ellie and her Mum and Dad.

I’ve been thinking
* It’s wonderful how the conversation ‘moves’ between a Grandpa and a new born: – looking, watching, concentrating, talking.
* It’s like ‘being with’ one another in un- rehearsed ways, holding each moment open.

Amazing how quickly I forgot my emails, oh dear.

Til later, take care
