More Cool Summer Pics!






These first three pictures are of my two little Minnesota dudes at the lake. Can you remember filling a bucket with sand ~ the satisfaction of the shovel scooping and emptying, scooping and emptying, the feel of the cold waves lapping at your toes, the sun on your shoulders? Look how the water breaks the sun into shining reflections if itself, a hundred tiny suns floating within your reach!

The last two were taken at Disneyland ~ Chime ringing the pirate ship's bell, and both boys on the Fantasyland carousel. Yes!
Chime is saying to jubilant LIFE with his upraised fist, Yes! I am here! Bring it on! Yes!

Summer is special for all of us, but especially for the kids.

(I am writing here, as it's your most recent entry and for lack of another way to contact you.)

PtA, you honour me greatly.

I am only 17 (I had to do the math) years out (but still have my tonsils and appendix!), and I am one of the 'ambivalent ones who tried to forget about it' -- the strategy didn't really work all that well. So I guess I am doing the work now (which is probably the real reason I wrote that huge thing to Schmutzie -- 'ferchrissakes Schmutz, don't do what I did!').

I have not before been here, to your blogs. I was seven when you were married. I suspect I have something to learn here. I shall begin at the beginning, in your life story blog. If I comment there, in old entries, will you still notice?

I am delighted to make your acquaintance. Email me, if you like (from my Profile).

Your pix and poetry and prose - all of it - is so evocative.

That was beautiful. Summer and childhood, distilled into a post.
