This photograph was made last June, smack in the middle of a sunny day. A few hours before, our older son had left for this first summer at sleep-away camp. Our team was down by one player. We were idling in a quiet state of shock.
Already I'm mentally preparing for this summer, when both our boys will be away. I hope to be right here – cradled in a deep spoon. I'm placing my order now for an enduring embrace that will last seven weeks.
