These are some of the things Noah teaches me about myself:

— He sees me as a whole. He doesn’t see bits of me that he thinks are lacking. He sees all of me and loves all of me.
— He has no embarrassment around me. Clothes on or clothes off, it’s all the same. I’ll be sad when that lack of self consciousness comes to an end. For now bodies are for jumping and cuddling and running and dancing.

— He thinks I am strong and powerful. I can lift him over a (very) high gate and carry him for half an hour through a corn field when we get lost. Which we may have done on Sunday, but neither of us panicked because we were together (and I didn’t let on that we were, in fact, a bit lost).
— He trusts that I know the way home, even when for a moment I didn’t. I got us home and it became an adventure. From now on it will be known as the day we went home “the long way”.
— He trusts that I will protect him, no matter what. He believes in me.

— He sees me as his comfortable chair. His human towel. His living transportation. His comfort when he missed his mummy.
— He takes me seriously. Most of the time ;-)
— He sees me with loving eyes. There is no “good” or “bad” — there is just “Susie”. Taller and bigger, though not blonder. Grown up. Protector. Conspirator. Best pal. Mule and servant. His auntie. His Susie.

I thought I had words to share this month, but it turns out all my creative energy has been needed for the new book. When I wrote the proposal for Chronicle last year I knew the project was an ambitious one. Photographing a book about London? Yep, that will take a bit of doing. As it turns out, it’s physically exhausting — London is a big place! — but I’m loving (re)discovering this city of mine. Even though I get home barely able to keep my eyes open, I’m thrilled to be flexing my creative muscles in such a focussed way again. The words will return but for now I’m pouring everything I have into this. Can’t wait to share it with you in the spring of 2016!
