I've been admiring Robert Rummel-Hudson's pictures on Flickr for quite some time now, enjoying looking at the world through his lens.
I came across Rob's work first through a diabetes-connection, as he's a recently-diagnosed type 2 diabetic, and started reading his blog. He writes rawly and eloquently about his daughter, Schuyler, who lives with bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria.
Here is where I could insert a furrowed brow sort of serious paragraph about diseases and disease management, about the intricasies of a specialized condition and how it can affect a life adversely. I could talk about different medical devices that are necessary and what kind of challenges a child may face when diagnosed with this condition. There are many serious words I could use, and many serious discussions to be had.
It's very hard to see a disease or a disorder when I looked into the eyes of this beautiful little girl and saw her smile.
Thank you, Rob and Schuyler, for making a drab Tuesday into something magical.
