    • Thanks so much. Is there anything more peaceful than a sleeping child? I used to watch my boys sleep all the time. When I didn’t fall asleep next to them or with one or two on top of me. They’re like sedatives. 😃😃

  5. Great photos, especially of the living beings. I recall The Carpenters doing yet another song called Close To You. I love Yes’s Close To The Edge, which might suit the first kid photo or the last photo–

  6. I liked the B & W photos and your songs with “close” in them.
    Of course being older I like the Carpenter’s song, “(Long to be) Close to you.” 🎶
