So, we are sitting, waiting for Hurricane Irene. Not that we want it to be here, but it will and there's nothing we can do to divert it. So, we are sitting and waiting.
As my husband and I are watching TV news for updates, my son is sitting next to us on the floor and watching the colorful topographic visuals on TV, mesmerized and focused, as if he understands what those twirls in green, yellow and red mean. Its such a sweet sight...watching him crane his neck, and twist it from left to right, trying to comprehend the complexities of this crazy world.
It sure is a sweet sight.
