In My Head

Once, years ago, Benji said suddenly, “What’s in my head, what’s in my head?” And he rushed out of the room to find a pad and draw! Here is a Tabblo Ned did of the Littlest Boy drawing, using pics from four years ago.

And now, I give you what is in my head, and elsewhere…

1) In my head: Excitement at the prospect of seeing Mom, Dad, and Laura.
2) In my heart: Happiness knowing that both Mom and Dad have plenty for Nat to do — I told him this and he smiled.
3) In my car CD changer: Melina’s dance mix, esp. this song
4) In my belly: Hunger for pie and bread
5) In my dream: An invitation to a grand dinner in a castle-like home, and then the worry that I would have to reciprocate
6) In my imagination: The Special Olympics book that needs to be written
7) In my navel: A simple barbell piercing, healing nicely
8) In my suitcase: A red skirt from Anthropologie that is almost exactly like my favorite one in nursery school.
9) In my gastank: Plenty of 89 octane fuel for the Amazon
10) In my inbox: Lots of fun emails, and lots of spam
11) In my State House: An outgoing, horrible Governor who just used his 9C powers to cut millions from the budget, including slashing help to stop homelessness and support services for the developmentally disabled and the mentally ill. Nice. Calls himself a man of God.
12) In my other second floor bedrooms: three slumbering beautiful boys.
13) In my bed: Ned, the kindest, calmest and wisest person I have ever known.


First, adorable pictures of your son. I love the look of concentration. Second, I enjoyed your list. I just read that your governor was in the race for the White House for 2008….Lord help us!
