babo leto


babo leto=indian summer.
a very real thing,
every year.
when we savour
every last fleeting beautiful moment
of this:

before this:

and we may not have a backyard,
but we do have

Leo Tolstoy Park





where we made sandwiches



ran from the camera



and breathed that crisp
fresh fallen leaf air




and it was all fun & games
until somebody's pants got wet
and we had to go home early.
"mama? water?"
"oh, i wish it was water, baby. . ."

Oh - how nice that you can get out right now. I'm sure the winters are hard....I know Thomas wouldn't tolerate them well. Actually, yesterday, he was telling me he hated snow and cold weather....good thing he is a Texan, huh?
