This morning at Vacation Bible School
8 year old Jacob
50 year old Ms. Julie.

Jacob said:
“I think it’s crazy that there are shoes that cost more than a dog.”

Ms. Julie said:
“Well, I guess shoes last longer.”
And continued on with the story.

And tonight in my studio apartment
all my 23 year old self wants to say is:
“Give me a yard full of life, and I will happily walk barefoot.”
