scenes : in summer light
Despite the fact that we’re struggling with Daniel’s absence we’re still enjoying summer; its colour and its light. I’m particularly grateful for the warmth this year, the opportunity to get out of the house and explore. The sun makes everything better, as does the shade of a tree and a blue, forgiving sea.
/ perfect drying weather. I’ve been doing a few loads each day, admiring the florals and tassels (before facing the reality that all those clothes and linens need to be folded and put away – the worst part!)
/ funny pillow play. Poet thought she was a bear, too.
/ whenever I see bougainvillaea I think of Bali
/ fairy in the garden; swift and spritely she runs barefoot and free
/ the missing is intense and deep. Every single day the kids ask: “When is Daddy coming home” which is when I say: “He’s travelling the world and making a tv show and maybe we’ll see if there’s a new photo on instagram!” and so we do…and the kids hug the iphone. He’s just finished a week in Mumbai and is off to Johannesburg before heading to Manila (and then a month in South America).
