How quickly it passed: that one moment deep in February when crimson toes and running bottomless on the beach was just right. When eyelids barely fluttered before bed, after sun and celadon water hit our winter bodies like a sack of sand. We dreamt of screeching pelicans, twisting coral and dolphins chasing us, lean in the water. White light everywhere. Today eight days in Florida feels far, faraway as I watch the kids stuff wool socks into boots and swipe at breath billowing from pink mouths like frozen, thick-winged butterflies.
