Conversations with Dash: the wedding photos
I was going through my wedding snaps last night. I wanted to send a couple to my sister to remind her what a lovely day her wedding had been, how much fun everyone had had, and how beautiful she is. (She needs reminding sometimes! She forgets.)
My wise little six-year-old-going-on-old-man, Dash, was looking over my shoulder as I pulled up the photos on my laptop. I had this one, taken during the vows part of Jeanie and V’s ceremony, on the screen…
And gazing at it, Dash said:
is Jeanie sad or happy in that photo?
What do you think, darling?
He pondered the image seriously and then declared:
Well her mouth is a bit down at the corners,
and her eyes look a little bit wet,
but she doesn’t really seem sad…
And what do her eyes say? I asked.
He looked more closely.
Then, with absolute conviction he said:
Her eyes say “I love you“.
And once again, he was exactly right.
