"Summer afternoon! Summer afternoon! The two most beautiful words in the English language." -Henry James
Today is one of those days that I think, "slow down, watch, savour this . . . this moment, right here . . . those little shining eyes, that sweet voice, the funny way she screws up her mouth, these precious hugs . . . " It's already going too fast. I want to put it all on pause, capture every amazing moment.
We went to the park today: Sami, Anna, Jim, my dad . . . Sami covered in ice cream, Anna in her big floppy hat, Jim so relaxed and everybody so happy . . . today everything is just right. Sure we don't have a job and Sami doesn't sleep at night and I've gotten up every ten seconds as I'm writing this to do something for Anna. But today, this moment, this hot summer afternoon, it's all so perfect. Everything is so right about right now.
