Weeks have past since I last blogged. It seems that I dropped off the planet. I guess I did. My two clever daughters, Carri and Julie, had their babies on the same day: May 3, on opposite ends of the continent. I spent half a month in Boston, MA with one new darling baby, Cora, and the other half of the month in Gardnerville, NV with baby Ruby. I held them both for hours and hours. They are new. Totally vulnerable. Thus, the most powerful people on earth. Every adult around them jumps at their very whim. Thoughts are only for their well being, happiness, health, safety, etc. They blink; we quake. They cry; we leap. They smile; we crumble. Perhaps there is a lesson in this kind of humility?
