Today


Today.
So warm that the camera stayed inside while we were busy playing summer.
There were moments I would very much have liked to share with you.
But I were in them and I didn't want to let go.
The camera stayed inside.
I stayed where I was.
There was a picnic on the living room floor with a naked three year old and some plastic fruit.
There was coffee with a neighbour that feels like a friend. A quiet moment in the sun.
There was no cutting the grass, no doing the laundry.
There was a little drama.
There was a bit of exhaustion.
But there was music too.
And there were mushrooms and courgettes for dinner.
And more coffee with other neighbours.
Today.
A very good one.
And now I'm sleepy like you're sleepy when you've spent too much time in the sun.
Good night.

yes, lovely.
it's easy to be torn - capture the moments in photos or surrender to them in life? sounds like you made all the right choices today.

Warm here too! I have flowers blooming now, that usually bloom at the end of June!
