The world turns on its end

Not much to look at, is it.

But this sheet of foolscap says if effect we are now, officially and legally, a mom and dad for the second time. We are stunned and thrilled at the same time. We were expecting weeks - it took 18 days.

Uh. OK.

And now we wait for the travel authorization.


"There's the way we may appear
but that will change from day to night.
Would you ever see within?
Underneath the skin?
Could I believe you had that sight?
--
And so a woman leaves a man.
And so a world turns on it's end.
So I'll see your face in dreams
where nothing's what it seems;
still you still appear some kind of friend."

Suzanne Vega
