"Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction."
--Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This is the Boy and I. I cannot imagine anyone else in this place. Next to me. Walking. Through the dirt, the sun, and the rain. Through the fields of wildflowers, next to the train tracks, and rounding the corner. One glances left, the other right, in tandem we walk, steady. Forward, one foot at a time. When I trip, he's already reaching to pick me up. He runs forward, I pace us. Balancing act. Together we can take on the world and add a bit more sunshine while we're at it.
