My favorite pictures of my siblings and I are the ones of us being silly or crying, mostly because they seem to be honest and natural, or posed in the ways we wanted to pose. I wish we captured the imagination of our childhood in photo memories like these two artists who engage creatively with their children. One draws inspiration from her sleepy baby, and the other by letting his kid get weird on a road.
The summer youth program that I run is over and now I'm just wandering around the gardens by my lonesome to harvest what's left for the mobile markets on Saturdays. Concord grapes, yard long noodle beans, and potatoes are on the harvest lists these days. I'm also gearing up for some winter garden planning by attempting to follow a crop rotation while learning the Latin vegetable family names.
