my 15 yr old knows.
when i stand at the bottom of the stairs and call up to her,
‘hey jo, can i have your help for just 10 minutes’,
she knows what comes next.
it means i just
a glimpse of the sun
hovering at the treeline,
calling it a day.
‘we have about
20 minutes, and then
that gorgeous light
will be gone’, i say.
she knows this, too
because i have said it to her before.
patiently, she comes down (well, patiently for a 15 yr old girl) and
lets me dress her in my cozy coat, place ‘riles’ on her head and fiddle with her hair.
then out we go into the yard.
the last time we did this
we climbed up into the kid’s platform fort.
it was nearly a miss, but we caught the light.
i’m so happy with the dusky look of these photos.
the combo of the light
and the glow
of the silk in the yarn
and the muted colors
is exactly what
for this pattern.
thanks for helping
me out, baby girl.
i really appreciate it.
