Today my daughter, Maddie, turns twelve. And, like every other Friday I drove her to school. As she got out of the car with her usual smile and quick wave, I happened to look over to where she had been sitting. There on her seat lay the blanket that she has slept with every night since I can't remember when. In her cup holder was a Wawa coffee cup filled with her morning decaf. And I was struck with the incredible notion that I was witnessing a transformation. A moment betwixst and between. A child on her way to adulthood.
At home, I did what a photographer might, I recorded this moment. A piece of childhood rubbing up against what will be.
