“We can only be what we give ourselves the power to be.” ~ Native American proverb
I can’t stop smiling when I look at this picture. When Ben Lykins smiled at me it was like a scene in a movie when you’re transported back in time at whiplash speed. In this case it was about 35 years and I was suddenly staring at Ben’s dad, Kenny, and his uncle Tommy at the same time. Ben was at the photo shoot Saturday. He’s been the engineer on Mike’s CD and he shoots video of the band from time to time. He even had good photo suggestions, which I gladly followed. I didn’t get to spend a whole lot of time with him, but if he’s anything like his dad and uncle – kind, funny, gentle men – some woman is going to be really lucky to get him. I sure feel lucky to have spent an afternoon with him. I hope it’s not the last.
