About my wife and I two indelibly true statements can be made: 1) we love books and 2) we’re about to have a son. The impending arrival of a human who will rely on us for everything, actually everything, rarely rests too far afield in my thoughts.
As such, everything I read comes back to that bit of information: a son will soon arrive.
Today’s best moment on the subject was a couple tweets from the ever-wonderful Neil Gaiman, reassuring in their combining of those two indelible truths. I can think of few statements more reassuring than these, from Mr. Einstein.
