Another Magic Evening...
I'm still all about the Magic tonight, got some pics, but as I have to do it one handed, with no flash, and he doesn't exactly POSE, well, you can get an idea....
It's hard, in this light to get a picture of how beautiful he is. When I went in tonight, I'd brought food, but forgotten the Feather Stick. I went back for it and came in, and he was already out and ready for the game! It was Boss, actually, with the Jungle Loves, you know, who first got them to come out, when he was visiting one day, and started playing with the stick. I remembered that last night.
His eyes, an the FEEL of him are so very different now. He feels wonder, and curiosity, not hate and fear.
That's his "Cave" sometimes he is under it, and sometimes under the blanket on it. I am feeling a lot of wonder myself. I can't quite explain this feeling, but for something so damaged, and so hurt, to be able to trust me enough to come out, and be happy...There's nothing like it. There aren't words.
It's a lesson of sorts. When Janet first heard of him, she was WAY honest with me about his chances, and the state he was in. I didn't know if I could help him, but I did know I was going to try, and there wasn't anyone else. After he came, and over the next few months, I still didn't honestly know if I could reach him. But I wasn't going to stop trying. Ever.
It doesn't matter if you think you can do something, it doesn't matter if you believe if you can do it or not.
It just matters if you DO it.
Love, and Wonder,
