“Wishing I was 10 again, so I could be your friend again” —BRANDI CARLILE
In the depths of February we’re longing for warm days and then suddenly, mother nature clicks her fingers, the curtain goes up (where did Spring go?) and it’s Summer! Today was 96 degrees! I shot this picture a year ago, possibly two, but I feel like it’s timeless. It’s my son, with his friend Indivi, and they’re making lemonade. A discarded flip flop, dirty feet, grimy- but determined hands, and the ground as a makeshift work bench. Happy Summer!
TO MAKE BASIC AMERICAN LEMONADE: Take 6 fresh lemons and squeeze them into a jug. Add 1 cup of sugar and 6 cups of water. Stir. Add ice cubes if you wish. Enjoy.
