Just a picture of an almost magical moment


Evening light filtering through still dirty windows.

I think I’ve been forgetting to savor the magical and almost magical moments in life these past few years, so focused on end-goals and surviving and what’s next.

But tonight I snapped this picture as I sat inside hiding from the mosquitos while Keira and Damir played outside. We ate takeout pizza, taught her a few Bosnian words this evening, and I watched her brain click on to realize that “mlijeko” means “milk”.
