The universe stopped just for a moment
Taking C back to school we were standing up on a packed commuter train heading towards London. The commuters are all in their boring black suits pretending not to stare at C over their newspapers and laptops.
C is smiling, C is happy head banging, C is jumping at least a foot in the air, he’s doing his usual I am really happy to be on a train ritual. After about 10 mins (we now have about 3 foot of space as everyone has backed off) of this he calms, and attaches his tongue to the immaculately clean window (not).
With tongue on window, humming, index fingers in ears, 4th fingers up each nostril, he then pokes his middle finger in each eye and looks at me!
He is looking at me, really looking at me!
I must be really distorted! I properly look better like that!
It was a lovely moment, I felt he was looking deep into my soul, so I telepathically sent him all the love in the world - no the universe!
Thank you Quasar9, I pinched one of your pics and blended it with one of me!
The journey went really smoothly for a change and the book was a laugh! So maybe the cosmos was with us?!
And the wine and sleep were a treat! I managed to lay in till 6am!
Ps Something for Halloween.
