Not exactly as illustrated
A brief note to say I won't be updating the blog until next week. With good reason, I think: my wife just had a baby.
Delivery was surprisingly and almost tragically complicated, but everyone's doing okay now. It reminded me of the consolation of circumstance, that we live somewhere public healthcare is valued, and that isn't under 12 feet of water. Happy beginnings are sometimes more important than happy endings.
If I owe you an email, I may not get to it for a while.
See you next week. Until then, to hell with death.
Have a buncha kids who call me, "Pa" - that must be what it's all about.
