Marguerite and I went to Fairhaven Park while G was at school.  Just the two of us, a water bottle and a quilt to throw down on the grass.  There were two other moms there, two kids each, both kids in diapers.  They were holding their own, those two, juggling toddlers and nurslings and all of the crap that needs to get hauled for a couple of hours at the park.  I felt so light watching them.  Two free hands.  A kid on her own two feet.  Some days are heavy.  Some long.  This day, though, had a streak of light.

And a sprinkle of water.
