Dazed and confused

Here is Satch at play. The soft brown fuzzy thing upon which he’s balancing (not the piano) is papa’s robe-clad knee.

And here, in a Hendrix-like worshipful posture over the ocean drum, is a boy who looks suspiciously like Levi, even though I remember him having been Pablo in the photo shoot.

Filling out the troika, on the trucka, is the boy who I was 1000% certain was Levi in memory – but staring at this photo neither Big Al nor I can see anyone but Pabs. I just must have goofed it in mind, because photos can’t lie, can they?
Well yes, actually, they can. The boys distinguish themselves most in their gestures, their postures, their dispositions. In a poorly lit room Al or I can very occasionally mistake a Pablo for a Levi, but given 10 seconds of observation any doubts about which is who and who is what disintigrate. L and P are, in fact, genetically identical – but they sport hugely individualized temperaments. In a frozen, isolated moment, however, it is possible for each identical brother to read falsely as his embryonic coconspirator. I actually DO think it is possible that the middle photo is Pablo and the bottom one Levi, a fact  of which I was once certain, even though the photographic evidence screams the contrary.

Another fascinating moment on our triply trippy path.

    Even to this grandmotherly eye, the photos say Levi is on the drum and Pablo on the truck. Ahhh, I think wistfully back to the days of color coding…. How great for Satch that he always looks only just exactly like himself!

    Actually, the reason I lean towards your analysis IS because of the color code. I think I’m unlikely to have put that totally blue shirt on Levi, unless I was deliberately playing “out.” (like last night, we had Pablo all Satched up in red pajamas).
