The Power of Quiet

family photography solitary boy at church

That’s my son Gavin.
We were in Todos Santos.
He walked into a church and sat down.
I followed him, snapped this picture, and sat next to him.
We were quiet.
Three sparrows flew into the nave and perched in the chandelier, twittering and singing.
After a few minutes, they stopped and flew outside.
Gavin and I smiled at each other, then stood up, and followed them out.
Service was over.
