“Watch this! Mom, watch this! Did you see? Watch this, watch this, watch this…”
and the summer passes with those who have young children.
Can I spend a summer not asking my friends and family to “watch this!”? I’m not so sure. There is something very good and basic about wanting to be seen. There is also something very needy and unsatisfying. Even writing this, I wonder whether I should share it. Facebook and Twitter are such large, impersonal stages.
I think I’m up for the challenge. But I’m not up for locking myself away in a closet. Unless, of course, the closet is my real life with flesh and blood interactions, and this blog with its tiny tiny (tiny) following. Which, when you think about it, is a pretty awesome closet.
