A child imagines where he was before he was born.
Where was I, when mum was still a little girl? Timon would like to know. ‘You weren’t there yet,’ mum says. That’s not true! Maybe he lived all the way upstairs in mum’s house? Or he was hidden inside her belly, like a cheerful, little tadpole? He was the striped cat in the garden or a happy bird. He was there, but mum didn’t see him … Timon is certain: he has always been there with mum.
