there are times you catch moments that you were not expecting to. such a moment arose, in my last session with maven, during a break while maven was having his feed. ryan’s mother was visiting and during this break, she ryan, and i were chatting in the living room. now that ryan is a new father, and has a son of his own, he and his mother started talking about ryan’s own childhood. she left the room for a moment, and returned with ryan’s baby album. i sat back, watched and listened, as mother and son reminisced about his childhood. it was a treat, and a real privilege, to be a part of the stories and memories they shared.
