ENTRY # 57
How does one measure time? til the end of summer. in jobs, projects and deadlines. in quarters, terms, semesters. …
And time repeats. in how a body sways. …
And time slows beautifully. in baby teeth, motor skills (pincer grip graduates to hold a cup). Bites give way to kisses. as Aidan reads cereal boxes aloud. (Mom! We can get a free toy and this is good for your heart!) as Connor does furniture gymnastics, climbs walls, leaps over carpet lava in a single bound Suddenly, in human units, time runs swiftly. Write it down. Take a mental snapshot. Please freeze this lazy day. Connor, “Can I still be your little boy?” “Always.” And I hold him tightly, because he wont want to be after a while.

At some point, we’re going to have to shoot for a mid-air family portrait (…umm, if one of us can hold Gabriel while doing it). You don’t have to be a kid. All you need is a lack of someone telling you that you can’t.

I am always astonished with each new stunt.
