You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. – Khalil Gibran

Living Arrows

I took Betsy into work with me this week. She loves coming to visit me and while she is perfectly happy in our basement office, I had work to do over the road in the palace. While checking something out in a committee room, I plopped Boo into the chairman’s chair and took a quick photo. Technically I’m not really allowed to do this, but how can I pass this opportunity up? How could I not take a photo of Betsy in a seat that’s only usually sat on by MPs? Besides getting a photo in the actual Commons chamber or the robing room (where the Queen dresses for State Opening) is actually impossible, so a quiet committee room it is. It’s still rather grand though, isn’t it?

Arthur and our friend Caspar. I’m not sure there’s much to say about this photo, just that I absolutely adore it.
