I wish you could see them, running along the shore of the lake, net in hand, eyes focused on the slightest movement in the water. Things of the land are wiped clean from their memory — Legos, Xboxes, Shoes, Lunchtime -the entire world is just right here, on the edge of the water.
All day long…. never tiring a bit of the same old same old.
Huck Finn, Peter Pan… their lives mirror someone like that…
They haven’t been back to the houseÂ sinceÂ lunch.
But they just stopped by about 20 minutes ago to show me their loot.
Eleven turtles so far…
They’re sorting them by size — before letting them go happily on their way.
