the thaw

February 8, 2009 |  Category:   life


Was it not just a few days ago when I said that I couldn’t remember what it was like to walk outside without a coat or the feeling of warm weather? Well, we left the house for the playground wearing our jackets, but soon took them off when we discovered that it was much too hot in the sun. Madness! It was 30 degrees colder just a few days ago! It was a good day to be out in the neighborhood – the streets and playgrounds were crowded, spirits were light and restaurants and stores seemed to be bustling. The girls rejoiced in the return to the playground, feeling lighter and unburdened by winter layers, hats and gloves. Maybe this is too simplistic a view or deceptively optimistic, but it felt like a signal of better days ahead.

    it WAS warm. thought I spent later part of afternoon at Bubby’s, eating and photobooting and drinking endless coffee.. Both Ava and Jinu were in deep sleep. So we had a very very long lunch. By the time Jinu woke up, it got so cold!!

    That photograph can not be of a real child. It’s like some kind of alien technology to take over the planet by incapacitating all humans into a state of “awwwwwwww soooooooo cuuuuuuute” and I’m a dude.

    Henri, haha. dude, sometimes I wonder where she comes from. I don’t care what my friends say, but she doesn’t look like either mark or me, and the only evidence that she’s part of our family is the fact that she does resemble her older sister who looks like Mark, but not me. Genetics is funny.
