Wednesday 4th April 2018

I met these two walking up Bourke Street as I waited outside of church. They spent the day together while I shot off to a Japanese lunch at Darling Precinct with Emma Bell.

As they approached Agįa Sophīa I noticed Kingsley for the first time wearing an open shirt with a tshirt beneath. And why wasn’t he wearing those khaki shorts I’d put out for mum to dress him in?

‘The child is growing…rapidly…’ mum replies. Those shorts I put out for him? Couldn’t get round or over his tummy. That short sleeve shirt? Wouldn’t button up.

Our four year old resembles a six year old as we enter church for Ash Wednesday…
