tonight: and in retropsection

“We write to experience life twice, once in the moment and in retropsection.
-Anais Nin

please allow me the occasional cheesy photography. thank you.

today i watch a girl come to embrace newfound place
(cousin)
toddler wrapping arms around brand new infant
wondering about her needs: toys and food
five quick minutes (maybe less!) of whimsy
today i make this memory with my heart on my sleeve
because desperate, so desperate
am i to see, see, see
the newness of the world every morning
(mercy)
through eyes like the little one
who considered one smaller still
and got her a teddy bear
