The Kumar Family

Sometimes blogging is the hardest part of what I do. I so often struggle to put into words what a photo means to me, especially when it is a photo of a friend. Sometimes my words just aren’t enough to express how I feel, and so often they are far too clumsy to convey what I am thinking.

Sometimes I read something written by another, that perfectly captures what I want to say, in a way I couldn’t even begin to hope to express.

“in the midst of love, within my gaze, / in everything I see but one thing / no shade of tree, no blade of grass / only a vision of you”
Japanese poem by Emperor Fushimi (1265~1317)

Ajit Pai - Oh My God !!!!!!!. What lovable and heartening snaps. Makes me emotional. Have known this family for generations. Fifty years? His Mom and I were teenagers when her cousin and I became classmates. Attended his and his Mom’s and Dad’s weddings. Have carried baby Sathya. And by the way, the little one is a split image of Sathya’s sister when she was a kid. Love you guys lots. Loads of love. Uncle Ajit

Mary - Thank you so much for writing. It is so wonderful to hear you speak of the family history and connection and love. I have been friends with Sathya for years since I first worked with him, and he is just a great person. So funny, so intelligent, so kind. And his wife and daughter are both beautiful souls. :)

Mary - Thank you so much Paru! They are such a beautiful family.

Love is Brave. And parents are the warriors of love, champions of love.
They will place their hearts in a being that exists outside of themselves, and hope, and pray, and believe that love is strong enough
to protect their own hearts, but more importantly to nourish and guide the new one that now beats for itself.
Bravery beyond fear. Courage beyond imagining.
Love beyond love.

Baby Mia


She arrived complete in perfection.
Soft breath like moth wings, beating heart a fluttering certainty.
Peachy velvet skin. A newness never repeated.


She held you in her arms. Breathed in your newness.
A tender, soft embrace no less fierce in its consuming desire to never let you go.
And she will not. She will hold you in her heart forever.

You have already grown so much.
You have already touched and tasted and heard and seen so much.
You have already brought so many smiles, so much laugher, so much joy, so much love. Too much to measure.
You have already cried, you have already screamed. You have already felt soothing arms around you.
And you are all ready for so much more. You are ready for the world. Ready for life.
And the world is ready for so much more of you.
