My beloved spouse was at a reading Wednesday night, and while dinner was cooking Nat and I got on the floor with some white butcher paper and crayons.  Nat has a two-handed drawing technique that’s great to watch.  He asked me to draw a “Nat-bird,” so I drew a bird with a smiling boy’s face.  I started to draw a crescent moon and he asked me to draw his mom, so I added a smiling woman waving, sitting on the tip of the crescent.  Nat said, “Nat-bird fly moon?”  Then he took his crayons and did his “abstract expressionist” thing all over my drawings, nearly obliterating them, making them beautiful.
