Here Room Sleeps
“Do you hear that?” Mimi tilts her head up, and cocks it a little to the right.
“No…” This happens often, but I play along. I got a good sleep last night so I’m feeling game.
“It’s it’s it’s it’s BLUE!” Mimi laughs.
“You’re hearing the blue?”
“Mimi, how are you hearing a colour?”
“It’s easy! You just feel in your tummy and your tongue and some other places like maybe the liver or the kidney! And it’s clear that it’s BLUE.”
I haven’t heard her explain something like this before, about her experience of the world.
“Mama, are you crying?” She touches my face.
