That Good Ol’ July Mish-mash

Lately it’s been difficult to think about posting sentimental family photos and random stuff to the internet in the face of unrelenting tragedy and political horrors. But what the hell. I’m stuck at home, you (if you’re American and responsible) are stuck at home. And I need an outlet. So here’s just a random assortment of a few things that made me happy from the past month.

I did, of course, make it down to what citizens have reclaimed as Marcus-David Peters Circle to see the fresh context all over the Lee statue’s pedestal. I love what Richmonder’s have done with the space to make it more welcoming and inclusive than the Commonwealth has ever done.
My son Wilson stuck an adhesive foam star over his eye and ran into the room declaring, “I’m a rock star, Daddy!”
And this is, well…this is just a frog warming up on the side of my mother-in-law’s house in Leland, NC. I don’t know what kind of frog, but my kids discovered it, and I managed to get waaaaaay up close to get a mug shot.

That’s really all I have for now. A scattershot summary of the past month by way of a reductive collection of smartphone pics.
