Sunday, sprung ahead

Sunday, a sunny day, 54 degrees.

Is is two days after my 44th birthday, our 10th wedding anniversary. A wonderful party on Friday night, thanks to my resourceful, bed-resting wife. I am in Apartment 14C in Chinatown, the window wide open, the sounds of the city drifting in. Listening to Patti Smith, “Because the Night,” playing through a tiny set of Creative SBS Vivid 60 speakers I got for Ting so that she would not have to rely on the PowerBook’s dinky speakers. Still hammering away at my Education paper, which is due Wednesday. Later, I will need to do lesson plans for the week and in general get ready. All that is happening today, still needs to get done.

Ah, but now…right now…

Right now I am sitting on the edge of the bed, in front of a dinner tray, typing this on Ting’s PowerBook. She is lying on the bed, behind me, asleep. Inside her, Michael grows day by day.

I am content. Wherever you are, I hope you are too.
