shave

This is the year he starts shaving, sometime in July


* When a boy becomes a man

How wonderful, that he blithely ignores the camera in my hands, as I capture the precious coming-of-age ritual which will occupy his days for the rest of his life.

(The girls happily apply the shaver to their hairy fingers and legs until I told them that if they kept doing that their hair would grow out like the black bristly stuff on Papa’s upper lip)
