On the tail-end of our Central Coast vacation, I awoke last night to the sounds of merrymakers welcoming the new year–hooting, honking–which was quickly covered by the slow motion heartbeat of the Pacific Ocean. I fell back to sleep, waking up a few minutes ago with a concern that will never change. How will my boy fare as he grows up? Will he have psychological problems? What will be his needs? All of my worries are fodder for Google Scholar, which I have set up to send me alerts.  Hopefully, they will do more than just scare the hell out of me, prompt me to make decisions that will help my boy as Father Time marches on. Hopefully too I will pay attention to the pages of beautiful drawings he holds in front of my eyes or his amazement at seeing a mother elephant seal rise up to protect her pup from annoying seagulls (who have come to dine on the her placenta). Hopefully, we’ll all be around to fret, plan, and see what we’ve been blessed with, our beautiful children, for a long, long time.
