Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

There’s nothing more poignant than a swing set in the rain. The sight of it evokes memories of summer afternoons of my childhood in the Bronx; the smell of the rain hitting the hot pavement signaling the end of playing on the swings. “But I get wet in the bathtub – what’s the difference?”, my […]
