I have found writing to be so incredibly good for me.
I feel such a happy peace knowing I’ve expressed a moment or feeling so I can keep it forever.
After writing about rocking Alia to sleep I noticed that I experienced it even more. My senses are heightened to every detail because of putting those feelings into words. And the concerns I have of her babyhood slipping away like sand through my fingers are replaced with contentment of knowing I’m never going to forget those moments.
Writing and photography. Like a little time capsule. It’s why I love them so.
