Pictures from Our Vacation
With their new cameras
a brother and sister
take pictures of their vacation.
But when they look at their photographs they see:1. The back of Dad's head
3. A container of noodles
Does 1 + 2 + 3 = summer vacation?
What about how it felt to swim in the lake? What about the stories their cousins told and the taste of a just-invented strawberry and whipped cream dessert?
For those memories--the memories of summer and the memories of family that mean the most--they need to look someplace else. Someplace deep inside. Someplace permanent.
