This is a picture of me with my 6 year-old niece, SPARKLE GIRL. We'd just arrived at the beach, it was colder than expected, and despite the fact that I was not even touching the water, she was shrieking in terrified laughter--sort of sure I wouldn't really toss her in...but not entirely.
Remember that feeling? Being half afraid something will happen, and half afraid it won't?
I don't have any deep point I'm driving towards, except perhaps a reminder to myself of things I tend to lose sight of:
Summer is here...Life is good...It's fun to be scared by the sudden arrival of new possibilities, even if they involve a complete loss of control...especially when I'm with people I love.
What are your summer epiphanies? What do you want to remember as you dive (or are tossed) into the next three months?
