they didn't want to get out of the car.
"do we have to hike?"
"let's show tormod chimonkey land."
and that sealed the deal.
I wanted to move a bit first, so i guided them toward the short redwood loop. they ran and played, Andre and his best friend, his best friend who leaves today for his home an ocean away.
and then, we arrive....chimonkey land.
chimonkey land where the sun is always warm and the river eases by, where sand buildings must be built and rope swings must be swung. where time ceases and the moment takes over.
and here, we live; we thrive.
in the slowness of the softly flowing river.
