14-12-17 God in the Clouds

Thursday 14th December 2017

We’re as a family at Dubai Mall – visiting pediatricians, shopping at Waitrose and playing at Hamleys. An all-round lovely few hours out though its definitely time to head home as its getting dark (winter is arrived with its cosy 5pm sunsets!)

The mall however at dusk is heaving and we’re almost ejected from the massive external turnstiles door when pointing skyward a contemplative Kingsley declares ‘I wish I was God to float up into the air and sit on the clouds to look down everywhere. I’d then float back down here and be with you afterwards‘.

Well of course I stopped in my tracks, translated for Erroll then screamed from delight/pride at this clever and conscientious child who must juggle two languages of thinking and two languages of speaking.
