What Boys Do When They Think No One is Watching
Last night, I was in the kitchen making me some dinner. One thing I’ve gotta say about being not married… I really love following my impulses when it comes to creating meals – especially on the weeks my daughter is at her dad’s and I have the house all to myself.

He was sitting in his beach chair, reflective sun glasses on and his baseball cap. I happened to look out just as an idea inspired him to jump out of the chair. I watched curiously and witnessed the most magical moments. I felt so happy I had followed the impulse to watch because it was something to cherish… so pure, so impulsive, so creative, so full of essence.

As far as I know, there was no music playing anywhere, which made the next couple minutes all the more wonderful because the music was in his heart…
