Love - OUAS August

I’ve been inspired by songs lately. “Stubborn Love” by the Lumineers is already an awesome song. But do you ever hear a song, and you know right away that you have the perfect photo for that?!?! I love this photo of my boy, Emilio.
I found the song perfect to scrap him a LO of how love comes into your life and then you have to let go when the time comes. As painful as it may be, we find love and it makes us really happy, but when the time comes, we learn and we move on. (This bit of advice I have journaled on the orange tab to the left of the photo that you can pull out).
Thanks, OUAS, for the theme which could have gone in so many directions. Nevertheless, it helped me to unload a piece of advice to my son. “I will never forget” can apply to so many events in life, and although some of them are sad, we wouldn’t have had it any other way…
it's better to feel pain than nothing at all
the opposite of love's indifference

Here's the lovely Lumineers tune...

...and a close-up...

...and the sketch...
