A classic mess / Un desastre clásico

Cake mess

A park near Oakville, Ontario, Canada (1998). (English text follows below). Casi todas las familias contemporáneas tienen una de estas fotos en la que el muchacho disfruta, sin inhibiciones, de una torta o unos espaguetis. Una foto en la que las  buenas o malas malas maneras del muchacho no tienen importancia . Esta foto de mi hijo fue tomada oportunamente en uno de esos pocos días de calor que llegan a Canada en un año dado. Pocas semanas más tarde y esa grama verde atrás estaría cubierta de nieve. Se tiene dos años sólo una vez en la vida . Y si el verano es corto, el tiempo apremia*


I’d say almost all contemporary families have one or several of this sort of pictures. The sort of which the toddler enjoys -with no inhibitions- a piece of cake or spaghetti with meat balls. A photo where the good manners or bad manners of the kid have no importance at all. This timely picture of my son came about in one of those very infrequent warm days that happen in Canada in any given year. A few weeks later and that green grass would be covered by a thick layer of snow and ice. You are two years old only once. And if summer is short, time is of essence*
