Letters to My Son: January 2017

The first letter of the year in my Letters To My Son Photography project. Every month, i take photos and write a letter to my son.


Its the first letter of the year for my letters to my son series


Dear Pookah,

It’s the beginning of the year and the 2nd part of the school year.

I’m feeling anxious.

This year, we’ve decided that it’s time for you to move on from your current school and enter another.  But of course, that’s not as simple as it should be.

We’ve entered the world of lotteries and school tours and interviews, looking for the best place for you.

I’m hoping for the best, and opening my wallet WAY wide to find that perfect spot for you.

I want somewhere that won’t tell you that you have limits. I want somewhere that will challenge you and that will help you to THRIVE.

I want to see that joy in your eyes when you are learning. We’ve lost that a little and I want to get it back.

i want somewhere that will nurture your body as well as your mind.

I want you to flourish, but still be a kid.

I want you to enjoy learning while still enjoying your childhood.

It sounds almost impossible, when I look at my requirements written down. But I know that the place for you is out there.

I can’t wait to find it.

I hope you are as excited as me.

Love you.
