Happy Birthday, Daniel!


Perfect form, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
At the end of July and beginning of August, we spent a couple of days with good friends at Klipsan Beach, north of Long Beach on the Washington Coast. The boys, as always, loved playing in the water, and Daniel, to fascilitate this, soon stripped down to his bare minimums, even though the rest of us were wearing jackets against a cool breeze. Daniel has always been sensitive to touch--he's the one who's most ticklish, most sensitive to abrasive fabrics, but he's also very sensuous about experiencing his environment. Here he stands, partly showing off I'm sure, but also immersed in the world, with his toes in the sand, his legs in the water, his eyes half shut, and his arms raised to feel the breeze on his skin.
