I am waiting to hear from my wife whether she and our sons have made it safely across the country. Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but, after a day or so, it fundamentally sucks. The lights of my life – that is what I am missing and eagerly waiting to be restored to. Anyway, a hardy shout out to my colleague, Prof. Waites, hoping the Wardrobe has opened magically and well. And a couple of articles from a woman whose prose makes me tear up and smile. Ms. Gurdon writes about the angst of raising children in this present darkness and about the grace of aging. The article on aging reminds me of how I once carpooled with three (!!!) pregnant women – may I say there are things I wish I didn’t know which learned on those drives.
