river god

Yesterday we sank our bodies into that cool river water and floated. Echo spun happily in a tiny tubie, holding my hand in delight, and Nathan and I traveled slowly down river, occasionally paddling just enough to keep our heads just above water. We jumped in at the pedestrian bridge and set our sites on the big cottonwood down river.

Summer also includes mosquito bites, I think I can count at least fourteen on Echo’s body from where I sit, and sunlight that continues so far into the night that if you wait for dark, bedtime accidentally occurs at eleven. Generally less sleep all around.

But you know you what? I could care less.

These precious days, river days, wash all our troubles away.
