summer sunscreen and moving into the sun.
it's in picking up something for the second time. to examine more closely and cradle more gently remembering why it's still there in a special box or in the back seat of the car. i used to keep dumb things. what someone picked up off the ground...a losing lottery ticket, a movie stub, or a piece of ripped jean...and handed to me. and i would hold it in my hand or place it in my back pocket and smile like i'd been given the greatest gift in the world.
