Nat’s Keys to the Universe

Nat has not told me in so many words, but judging by what makes him smile the most, here is a list of what I believe are what Nat would say are his Keys to the Universe:

1) Eating a meal with my family all together at the same time
2) Salt and pepper by my side
3) Sun
4) My yellow tee shirts
5) A good bit of word play (“Aunt John and Uncle Laura”)
6) My wetsuit in the cold ocean at Cape Cod
7) Sneaking a thumbsuck
8) The Beatles
9) Fudge
10) Special Olympics Swim Races, especially winning a medal


Those ALL sound good, especially the salt and pepper by one’s side. Crucial. As for winning a medal at the Special Olympics, I’ve never had the honor, but I can only imagine.

Those are great…and I definitely agree with 1, 8 and 9!

Thanks for putting a smile on my face this morning Susan!

Sounds like a great list to me. don’t know if I’d be as good at whittling down the choice.
Best wishes
