as we hiked on the trial i saw my kai growing up before me. your kids change right while you are looking at them. you can really see them when you are among the trees and the whispering squirrels. he let me hold his hand which he doesn't always do now that he is 7 1/2.
He knows all the names of the trees we pass by. he is my guide to the self I have always been, but didn't shine on anyone.
Kai is a sun and Story holds the rays coming down to warm the earth.
