Ahhh to be a child again.

I saw a kid struggling through the snow in my alley today.
Trying to keep up with his dad.
He couldn't have been older than four.
Snow almost up to his waist,
making his way in the tracks left behind by so many cars.
His yellow parka stood out in the sea of grey.
It was an uphill battle but the lil' trooper moved on.
Smiling the whole time,
in his new Spider-Man boots.

I guess, I could equate that with wading in water or really loose sand?...the magic of snow is lost on me.

I love the snow, but what got to me was how happy or innocent or whatever the kid was feeling. Glowing, kicking the snow off his new boots. *shrugs shoulders* So how the hell are you doin'?
