thanksgiving, 1985

There is a brave fight going on in this photo.  There is a brave (albeit futile) declaration of "not paugh!" in the surrounding family warring against the breathy "paugh..." sigh of the sweatered child on the mid-bottom-left.

i find the the central bear-shirted child to be a goldmine. something about his facial expression - i think it hints at some kind of adrift self-awareness behind his silly enjoyment - combined with that haircut. Am I overreaching? Also there's a definite vibe from the the tall recessed red-shirted man's hat. It's slightly crooked and almost pilgrim-like.
