Noah and Linden

Screenshot_2017-08-13-19-34-02-1

Noah’s hand is so small that it can only just hang onto his Pa’s thumb. But he holds onto it, not even knowing that he does. His Pa is 193cm tall and Noah is 65cm tall. Noah’s Pa towers over him, a monument of strength and gentleness. Noah is protected on all sixty sides. Who knows what his life might be. Maybe he also will grow tall and true – if all goes well. If all does not go well, he will probably grow tall and true anyway. He has, after all, stories, music and parents that gaze at him for hours on end. And outside, he has a small vegetable garden, windy days and opportunities to look all around while sitting on an ordinary lawn.
