Our four and a half year old asked us:
“What is this God.?” This after sharing
With us his favorite color, orange. I told
Him orange was also my favorite color.
He said to me: “Pick another color. There
is only one orange and it’s mine.”
I gave him my smile, a ½ circle with all the
Colors of light inside, spilling over like milk from
A bowl, and him eating cheerios, grinning.
