my day started with a need for gentleness... it seemed the world was just a little too abrasive for me, yesterday.
so i unplugged and watched my three loves play in the water,
and when the waves stilled and all was settled, I grabbed my ipod and coconut lotion and laid on that yellow mat on the water for an hour or so.
have you ever meditated while lying in the sun, still, on water? it's a remarkable, blissful thing.
to the zoo.
our zoo has a special life-like dinosaur exhibit this summer, so we got to see roaring, moving, spitting dinosaurs. my two paleontologists loved it, naturally.
lemonades and cotton candy and train rides later, we played at the playground 'til the place closed.
to dinner it was, at a favorite place,
then to the store for a couple of essentials.
home again, home again,
to a verra hot house...
which turned out alright, as we stripped to our skivvies, and had our first midnight swim of the summer.
darkness, skin, and salt water?
decadent and sublime, my friends.
so, there now.
