this is the picture
that i wanted to take today:
‘kelp’ in the sun (it’s nice & knit worsted).a lovely box of this color arrived just this week and made me smile.
maybe spring isn’t coming soon, but this is spring-like.
next, below is the picture
that my 4yr old wanted me to take today.
then hiked up the yarn mountain to find spring.
see how he holds a piece of ‘spring’ above his head with his right hand
to show his mastery over winter?
and the sun shone all day.
how was i to know
that one little plastic man
(and my son’s avid imagination)
would be all it takes to lead us around the corner
into sunshine, receding snow, and spring?
someone give that little man a cookie quick,
before he moves on to
hand one to his 4yr old friend, too.
