Warmth in picture form?
Four years–and untold miles and tears–ago today, our family felt the Equatorial sun. We saw birds enfolding freshly hatched offspring. Sea lions lay together, nuzzling their sand-dusted babies. On rocks a few feet away we saw a sea lion wriggle from the warmth of his mother’s womb into the dazzling light.
At home a blizzard filled the skies and obliterated the sun.
But where we walked we could still feel the warmth of Jim’s humor and his very touch, hands radiating heat, his wedding band glinting gold.
