Insular Existence

hand_to_face.jpgMy Spring Break ends today, and tomorrow I'll have to leave Molly during the day and deal with the real world. In just a few short days, I've fallen into her rhythms of eat, sleep, poop, pee that she imposes on us, and I have to admit it's soothing, almost satisfying, to provide for a baby's simple yet compelling care. The pleasure of focusing on the needs of my child melts away the normal stress of time and work and replaces them with self-contained, insular existence: helping Molly grow. Nothing else matters, and that's okay.

Hey Mr. Davis, Congratulations on your beautiful new daughter. I'm not sure if you remember me, but you were one of my favorite teachers in high school. It's good to see that things are going so well for you. Good luck!!!
