Project 365 - Betwixst and Between

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.
