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?
