Day 161: Something Beautiful—Il Neonato

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

The newborn. June 8 is the anniversary of my oldest son’s birth. Each year that he grows older, I wonder at the miracle of his arrival. I marvel at the beauty of that fresh and perfect skin. Sweet, gentle, and tiny fingers, toes, and nose. The image today is not my baby, but one every bit as beautiful as mine. Happy Birthday, Philip!
