The possibility of summer

 The cool breeze sent us back home eventually, but not before my granddaughter Mira (two and a half) and I had enjoyed exploring the beach for the first time since winter sent us scurrying inside.
The approach of summer is like the gradual opening of doors. Watching Mira taking in new experiences has the same effect. Through her eyes I see the freshness of the sea, the presence of the gnarled pohutukawa, and the wonder of sand filled with treasures.

Beautiful; the pictures, the words and spirit of them, and, of course, Mira. How wonderful it is to watch nature bloom along with a child.

What a beautiful wee granddaughter you have - and to see the world through her eyes is to see beauty anew.
