    I was home for an unexpected year and Mom and Dad were there to take care of me like ten years had not passed. Everything and nothing had changed. During that time we took a roadtrip down along the Oregon Coast and beyond, following the waves and stormy weather. My Mom loves the wilderness, it is where she finds peace. I caught her gazing out to sea, reminding me of how we take our places with us and the people and our memories help define our personal ideas of home. My family is my home.

    I remember your photo from the "Because of Her" assignment, it almost made the final story. So I am really happy to see that you submitted to this assignment. The way your mom's hair is blowing across her face with her gazing off frame creates an intimate tenderness that I love. And then when I read your caption — I love the line: "Everything and nothing had changed" — your photo becomes even more beautiful. I hope you have shared this with your mom, she will love it. Well done Theodore.
