To live a life of fig jam and swimming holes
long walks and at least two kinds of hummingbirds
naked desert showers and coyote song
belly laughs and belly love
nighttime kisses impervious to mosquitoes 
big blue sky of a blue not taken for granted
my company for hockey sometimes
massaged kale and steak cooked perfectly two different ways
teaching and learning to catch with a mitt 
crying because it hurt when the ball hit
and stubborn refusal to stop learning 
at least until it's just not fun
and then also
canoeing fishing coffee 
tea sailing sit-ups 
pushups beer banter
and learning more birds
walking more miles
and each new thing that makes you come alive
with me.
