These were taken during paternity right around the 12th of March. Only 4 weeks ago and already the weather has turned to cold. Every morning when we wake up now there has been rain during the night and the floorboards downstairs are so cold you need socks to be comfortable. Soon it will be painful to go barefoot. Looking at these pictures already makes me nostalgic for the summer I wished away. I'm certain it was uncomfortably hot but the pictures speak of golden afternoons and warm breezes breaking up the static heat. I always miss the season that's passed. I always miss everything that's changed. I can't wait for woolly hats and Violet's first pair of gumboots but on the other side I'm looking forward again to cloudless skies, naked babies and painting in my childhood smock as the shadows get long in the afternoon sun.
