Lambent Chance

BCC Cours
A book of clouds, that was my gift.
I opened it and turned the pages randomly.
A face, a mushroom, a flying saucer, a world of lambent pictures in the sky. They made my child smile and point and laugh and giggle for no reason.
By chance, I opened the book on a page where the clouds had formed a 6, his age. He stopped, staring at the photo, then looked up.
“That’s me!”
“Yes, that’s your age,” I replied.
He beamed and said “I have been to the sky!”
Being a kid is such an amazing thing, isn’t it?
