of birthday wish pauses



right after i told him to make a wish, he paused, and had the most serious look on his face. and he sat there for a a few long seconds, utterly consumed in the thought of his wish -- even after the candles had been blown out. it was the longest birthday wish pause i've ever seen. and it was perfect. i felt like i caught one of those rare glimpses into exactly who he was as a kid.

(and those rare glimpses are my favorite kind of glimpses.)
