virtually topsy turvy

True story..

I took my son out for a walk the other day on a clear night, down a quiet lane and the stars were out filling the sky with all their twinkling glory. My son looks up in awe and says..whooooaaa I feel like I'm at the planetarium.


I could just imagine in 20 years from now a diary entry..something like this..

Dear Diary.
Today, day 3 at the resort.
My friend and I borrowed these cool old fashioned rackets from the hotel and went to the old tennis courts in the back.
It was so cool playing..with the mountains in the background and the wind in my face..
It felt jussssstttt like I was on my Wii..

when you lay

when you lay..
with your little boy
4 hours after a CT scan
its very different..

..when you put him to sleep
you suddenly notice..
in the dim fading light
how long and beautiful
his eyelashes are...
how soft his limp hand
is against your lips..
his scent...massages
your very soul..
and you forget..
for a moment
..the agonizing wait
for results...
