this is my great grandson. Julian Daniel Ortiz. he is at Staples. has his packet of blank pages and a new box of crayons. he is approaching the check out.
i printed this pic from his mother's facebook page, so it's not the clearest, but nonetheless, you can see something of who he IS. he is not yet two.
beside his mother, he is the other Entity who lives where we are being magnetized. this is who daughter Jenny will live with for the next months. if you might remember, he is the one who skips. the other thing i can tell you, to give you a "picture", is that he has taken up running LAPS around their back yard courtyard. as with the skipping, no one knows where or why he began this practice. but he does. and LAPS. round and round. he does not discuss this with anyone. just does it. his mother, my granddaughter respects his space and does not ask. he just
takes off his diaper and runs.
August is the second most significant month to me. July 31 is always like New Year's Eve. August however is a heavy month. here, the word fecund fits. i have traveled the calendar enough years to be ready for it. maybe this year it will bring some different surprises? maybe some distortions of the usual?
