Over the long weekend I shot some video of the kids. It’s in the editing room now and I’m having a hard time with it. I think it’s all superb, but sure it would bore the rest of the human race to tears.

The shots are candid. Two little boys playing dinkies and gearing up for the big race. JB the filibuster, holds up the starting gun creating new roads and combing his hair with a vacuum attachment. KD’s patience is tested and he loses focus. The tables turn and it’s JB who complains about the time being wasted. Two boys, 2 brothers, 2 years apart, close in adventure, inside my heart. Coming April 4, 2008.

They are playing 2 player Lego Racers now. Fortunately my laptop keys are not ergonomic enough to win any major victories, so it’s fallen out of favour.  The novelty of Mom’s computer worn off, it was only a matter of time. I’m grateful.

But wait, JB’s Christmas list includes his own laptop with the keys in front. Fortunately I won’t be able to find one like that.


Spring snow

The green is there
I can feel it

White healing
covers the wounds
of sun
and bike tracks

Fertile soil remains
aching for replenishment


“So you think everything’s going to be ok, hey.”

“Yup. Everything will be just fine.”

“What makes you so sure?”

“Why wouldn’t it be?”

“Cause life always throws you a curveball.”

“So. Throw it back.”

“What if it’s too big to pick up.”

“Then kick it.”
