i love this

photo, taken

yesterday by your

nanny in india, rachel.

i saw it this

morning as you

sat on my

lap, crushing cookies

into crumbs,

crumbs that are now

stuck to my socks.

but back to

the photo…

when i saw it,

the lines from

a song immediately

started playing

in my head…

“we can ramble hand in hand across the grasses of our land
i’ll kiss you for each leaf on every tree”

your mom loved

this song, and i

can still remember


face lighting up

when this song

would play.

and i can

just picture her

face lighting

up as she

watched the two

of us,

you and me,

walking through

the grass toward

nothing at all.
