Little Pitchers

Something Simon said a while ago has been haunting me.

That's my cue to write it down, I'm beginning to figure out.

Andy and I were fussing and arguing in front of him, as he sat in his place at the dinner table.

His comment?

"Stop it. You're taking the love out of my heart."


Pretty eloquent, that.

I remember how I used to feel - so scared and unmoored - when my parents would fight. Simon summed up that hollow-chested, elemental fear brilliantly.

I WILL think about this next time we grown-ups need to have a "discussion."
