Nina, born March 31, 2010 at 5:05 AM

My daughter and first grandchild are now home and doing well.
Nina took her time being born and so did her mother.
They were coming from a better place.

 "Take the matter of being born. What does being born mean to mostpeople? Catastrophe unmitigated. Social revolution. The cultured aristocrat yanked out of his hyperexclusively ultravoluptuous superpalazzo,and dumped into an incredibly vulgar detentioncamp swarming with every conceivable species of undesirable organism. Mostpeople fancy a guaranteed birthproof safetysuit of nondestructible selflessness. If mostpeople were to be born twice they'd improbably call it dying--"- e.e. cummings, Introduction, New Poems
