“It was the last ski trip of the year. Just me and my stepdaughter Sam. Over ten years, I had watched her grow up. Now she’d been accepted to college and big change was in the air. We were at Mission Ridge outside Wenatchee, Washington. The day was dark and gray but then, as we reached the peak, wind scattered the clouds and we stood in this incredible light. Peaks turned white! The sky turned blue! I handed my phone to a congenial bystander and here’s what she took: a quick portrait of two great friends on a very special day.  Check out Sam’s smile. And mine. To be repeated a few months later on a much warmer, no-clouds graduation afternoon.”
