Today, all four hours of it, has been bad for fatherhood. The public reasons are obvious and everywhere; the domestic cross-talk too specific to unpack. It is an unbearably big thought to hold, sometimes, this bringing of people into the world.

(The link will expire tomorrow and that seems right.)Posted by Sasha at May 12, 2004 11:17 AM | TrackBack
