I've mentioned that Christa, my nine-year-old, writes me notes. Most often they are the short and sweet variety: I'm hungry. Can I have a snack?
A few months ago she handed me a multicolored, glimpse-into-her-mind note.
Looking at the bright colors and hearts and stars and smiles, I'm thinking it's a lot of fun in Christa's mind.
I asked her why she drew this mini-mindshot, and she shrugged. I said, "It looks fun."
"Yeah," she said. "And wild."
Okay, that would explain what looks like some sort of animal paw print in the upper right-hand corner of the drawing.
I showed Christa's drawing to my daughter, Katie Beth, last night. She joked that if I drew a "mind note" it would be a bunch of words with red marks on them. This is what I get for being an editor!
Thinking Out Loud: So what about you? If you drew a "mind note" to give us a glimpse of your thoughts and feelings, what would it look like?
