Getting a jump start on good vibes...

Focus intently on this little face:


Tomorrow is Evan's brain surgery, scheduled for the morning. Evan is my lovely friend Allison's son and she and her husband Jeff are in Phoenix right now holding it all together. Surely the collective good vibes of the innernet can help them all through the next 48 hours. So concentrate! Focus, people! Exude health, happiness, smiling, giggling, first-grade little boy farting jokes, Superman lunchboxes, first bicycles, grubby jeans, spelling bees, hockey games, dating, the teenage angst, wanting to paint his room black, learner's permits, dating a girl with an earring in her eyebrow, driving the parents' car and returning it with a dent in the fender, going to college, graduating, becoming ... anything at all he wants to be.

Sometimes I forget how lucky I am. I love Allison and Jeff and Evan and hope they are all smiling soon and that one day this will all be a distant memory, far eclipsed by their son wanting to paint his room black and get a nose ring.
