  10. Oh, I love it! Your daughter is beautiful (she looks very much like you)! And I think we're so captivated at the sheer joy of these little ones at the beach, as they play in the sand and frolic about in the surf our hearts soar, and for just that little while we can forget any problems that may be laying in wait for us, we can just be in that carefree moment with them, enjoying their wonder and their excitement.
    Beautiful pictures, Simone. God Bless!
    All the best,
    Eileen

  11. What a cutie! Perfect weather for the beach isn't it? Not such perfect weather to be 7 1/2 months pregnant though - I am really feeling it!

  31. Simone, I sent this post to my beloved in his office to say 'isn't this little Charli like Daisy in the waves' I thought you might be interested in his reply to your question in the post. He's a brainy guy my love!

    - because we are looking at the whole universe and all of time in microcosm, in the form of our very own legacy, our children, who are symbolising in their actions what we all do; in engaging with the edge of the ocean from where we all come, they seem to be simultaneously facing the infinite horizon of the future and the deep brink of our common past.
