  • We're cuddling up in the sofa, me, my son and my dog. It's freezing cold outside, and way too cold inside. We are looking though pictures from last summer.

    My eyes tear up, and I wonder:

    Is it possible that life was as good as it looks? Do I remember that it was, or am I being decieved by the photos? And in any case: will it ever be again?
