Blowing away the cobwebs

Went out for a stroll to the bay.

It was so windy!

I tried to capture it on camera, but it didn't do it justice.

We went then along the quay to one of the docks, where canoe polo was happening

Brave souls in the cold and wind!!

Then back past the Assembly building

Beautiful, costly, building...

T laughed and shrieked and ran in the wind, let loose his feelings and voice to join the sounds of birds and flags flapping and his brother laughing.

I couldn't catch the wind, nor could I trap the joy he exuded, laughing from the depth of his being.

If only he could always be like that!

If only he didn't have to face an uncertain future, at the mercy of whatever system those that sit in that building put in place next.

If only I could be there always with him, holding his worries, containing his anger, guiding his wandering mind and keeping him safe.

But that is too much to ask and too much to bear the thought of him coming to harm.

So prepare we must and for today we run in the wind and laugh and shriek and jump and twirl

And join our hopes and fears for the future and place them firmly in tomorrow, so we can enjoy today...
