  AnimeshRay / © Animesh Ray      Project : Walking with my daughter in San Francisco
She has never been easy to walk with.  
Her earliest walk I remember, along a tree-lined walkway in Pacific Northwest, a rain-washed spring afternoon, cherry trees in bloom. She waddled in zig zig at every new butterfly, running into the muddy slush, stooping behind earthworms trailing lines of wet mucilage on asphalt, as I struggled to carry the empty pusher. Now in youthful elegance she strides with springs under her heels, as I huff behind, struggling to keep up.  

In those early days, she talked about her pet tortoises, about rows of swamp nephetheses slowly digesting bugs in their cups, of how the sun not the earth that moves--“Silly daddy!”--Did ichthyosaurs swim…“C’mon do you really know anything? Even my friend Amelia…”

Today her questions for me have ceased and mine have begun; silent answers to be discovered.  I follow her along the streets of her city, keeping one eye on the street and the other on her.
