We were at the park by the elementary school. I took off my heels and stepped out of the car. The grass was slightly damp on my bare feet so when I stepped in the sand it stuck to my feet. I ran to the swings like a kid trying to get the last one. He followed me his hands in his pockets. He stopped at the edge of the grass watching me. I pumped my bare legs back and forth and started to swing.
“Take off your shoes and join me.”
He crossed the sand and leaned against the metal post to take his shoes and socks off. He bent down to roll up his suit pants. I watched his hands as I had so many times. He came over sitting in the swing next to mine.
“Mathew it seems like yesterday that we were here. Just like this.”
