when they were young

i have so many reflections buzzing through my mind and so little time to capture them with letters.

work, play with the new love of our lives and taking care of the new love of our lives, and sleep seem all to be the center of the universe to us.

Some days, I look at pictures of my parents when they are young, and I am amazed at their tenacity in the face of the newness of being parents. After all, my mama was 19 and my dad was 22. K is 36 and I am 34 and we are so green, but easing into this with clarity and open hearts.

me and willa

our elders next to our bed

This picture of you and Wills at the kitchen table - she with an expression so wise and fresh, and yours so contented and curious - makes my heart joyful.

Wow is right - she is the most beautiful perfect little thing.
