This photo is of our son when we were visiting family in England in the summer of 1984. He was five and we were in the Malvern Hills of Worcestershire. I orchestrated the photo a little. You can barely see the tiny Star Wars figure clutched in his left hand. I was trying to get him and the wildflowers in the same photo but Brad was more interested in running around playing Star Wars. When I asked him to look at the flowers he stopped for a couple of seconds, I took my shot quickly and he again went off running. He was happy and so was I. I got this photo.
There was a boy...
A very strange enchanted boy.
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he,
And then one day,
One magic day he passed my way,
And While we spoke of many things,
Fools and Kings,
This he said to me,
The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return.
