deep summer.

summer of splash pads and shared bites of coco helado. it used to be that i always made sure to keep a couple of one dollar bills in my pocket in case we passed a music maker, as they are bright stars in the complex cosmos of new york city, they are the dreamers of dreams, and expressing my gratitude is a habit i want to model for my babies. anyway, that's still true, i do keep dollars on hand for tipping musicians, but now, too, for small paper cups heaped with coco helado, the emblem of deep summer and perfect in size for small, eager hands. by now we can spot the cart from three blocks away.
