November family self portrait, Quogue

Quogue, thanksgiving 2015

Corn rows of clouds hanging, cold
sleight froth crashing. Sand

in toes, balm for our hot heads
(Haiku)

***
The family self portrait  project started in January 2011. 
I take one portrait of the whole family, myself included, once a month.  
In late 2013 a "ghost" writer joined the initiative and now each photo is accompanied by a poem.
In 2015 the kids started collaborating and introducing their own ideas
...the project has a life of its own

also,
Every family should do this. It's an amazing record of the little things that matter
