What is that?

This little short moved me deeply. A poignant portrait, it captures the bond that exists between a parent and child. EM, who is 3 and a bit, asks questions constantly.

It’s a good reminder to be patient and savour those small storybook moments.

In my father’s last days, we used to spend our afternoon’s together watching the world go by from our front steps. In the moment, some of those afternoons seemed endless. Now that he’s gone, I can honestly say, they weren’t long enough.
