When it's hot like this, I don't care about fashion, or work, or responsibility. Don't care about anything but the same stuff I cared about when I was a kid; popsicles, hoses, grass, shade, imagination. As an adult it looks different than it did when I was a tot, but the heartbeat is still there. Shorts, bare feet, beads of sweat, covering the neighborhood sidewalks in our footprints. Playing make believe looks different when you're a photographer, but it's not so different than those times as me being the older sister when I'd tell Jody while we were playing, "Now say this part. Good, now move the stuffed animal over there. Good, now say this--" Once a director, always a director. It's in my bones, folks. I prefer to think of it less as bossiness and more as big picture thinking.
