And according to Porgy and Bess "the living is easy". Early morning floating out the back of the waves prepares me for the holidays filled with children, extended family and organising the next meal.
Moving your neck to the cries of "Watch this!" having an answer ready for "What's for dinner?", soothing the innui of "I'm bored, there's nothing to do" and rallying to the demands of "I'm hungry", finding answers for the hard questions like "Why do I have to wear sunscreen?", then at bedtime listening to creative protests "My eyes don't know how to close, there's something wrong with them" and "I just came out to give you a huggle".
"Fish are jumpin' an' the cotton is high". This never ending cycle from generation to generation, it is fascinating that the human race continues round the same circle. May you move easily from one dot to the next these holidays.
