Photos and Words: Crossing the Bridge

– ‘ ‘You must let go of my hand and run back to mummy,’ I said. My voice was intentionally light despite the heaviness setting in my heart as five little fingers began to uncurl from my own. Then they hesitated, ‘But what about you grandpa?’
My knees creaked as I bent low to face those inquisitive crystal blue eyes my own daughter had sported as a small girl. They scrutinised me in the same way hers had when I broke the news that our beloved Lab had ‘went to the farm’.
‘Grandma needs me, I’m going to be with her now. You look after mummy and be a good girl.’ With a tussle of her hair, she nodded and skipped off into awakeness.

Photos & Words: Madness in the Woods

– ‘Deep in the woods the girl wandered, her curiousity making the air shimmer and glow around her. As the shackles of self-doubt loosened on her mind, her imagination revealed a door lying in wait for her arrival. Something beyond it called to her softly and she followed, drawn to its spell.

They say that when the girl returned to the village some years later her senses had all but left her. No child ever went near the woods again.’ –
