Ever since she could walk, when Little L gets tired, and we are out in public, she orbits me like a little moon around her Mother Earth. She usually has her left thumb in her mouth and her right hand up my shirt, skin to skin, to comfort herself as she walks around and around and around.... at the checkout line, at the bank line, at the bus stop. It has gone on for so long now, I scarcely notice my little moon, until some stranger starts eyeing her from afar and smiles.  My little luna girl, I am still the center of her universe.
