The Parade



As we get older sometimes we forget how magical life can be. Maybe its because we're not as small as we once were. Things that seemed larger than life are now a disappointingly normal size. Glitter is now messy, not the stuff of dreams. I got the chance last Saturday to photograph the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America march in the Richmond Christmas Parade. I hadn't been in over a decade. Ugggggh it's cold. Who cares about a stupid parade. As we traversed the two mile route, I couldn't help but get caught up in the little smiling faces, the cheering and the holiday attire. Parades can be magical whether you're two or thirty-two. They celebrate the best in us and offer a chance for us all to come together, thousands of faces all lining the sidewalks standing next to one another. I'm getting waaaaaay corny....must be all of the cotton candy I ate that day. Stay tuned to their Facebook page for more pics, but here a few that I also took on the route. Happy Holidays everyone!
