Not every day that I hear “We’ll we play chess” when I ask young family what they like to do. We were in the F’s family beautiful home in Marin for their annual holiday card session. We did photos of them lounging around their house, at their piano and outside in their yard playing with the dog. Everything was going great. Lots of laughs, stories about the art around the house and finding beautiful light in the back yard. We were close to wrapping it up and I asked if there was anything they liked to do together. Much to my surprise they all said “chess”! So we pulled out their board and sat down for a game. They started out just pretending to play but I could see after a couple moves that they got serious. And their charming little girl got right in and started making moves. I just love seeing families that connect in random ways. Really makes them special.
Thanks F family for showing me a few of your moves.
