Children hold nothing back—living somewhat feral days as they zigzag from one curiosity to the next. Daily life, for them and with them, is intensely mundane and also overflowing with fierce wonder. Domestic dichotomies abound in the permeable membrane between adults and children and animals.

Birds flit. Cats lounge. Blood pulses.

The fragility of life hovers close to the surface.

These are deeply personal days rooted in this particular place; yet, these are also moments bearing witness to familiar joy.

As a child I remember, vividly, spending long hours riding in the car. To amuse myself, I pretended I was a detective who had to remember how to get home again-- memorizing the visual landscape, searching for small clues along the way.

Eventually I outgrew this game; however, fragments of it lingered. I look for clues through the lens of my Hasselblad. I look for the already but not yet. I look for my way home. 

Ashleigh Coleman
