There isn’t a lot of time for writing with a newborn and yet now is the time when I have the most to say.
I’ve always been open to wonder, but Miss Maisie has introduced a new kind of wonder I hadn’t anticipated. With her in my life I will never again doubt that the world is a truly amazing place. I’m looking forward to showing her and I wonder how she will respond to it. The beautiful thing is she has plenty of people to act as tour guide. It’s important to me that she gets her stimulation from as many people as possible and that she is exposed to cultural and biological diversity. I don’t think that will be a problem since there are plenty of people who love her and we live in a city that celebrates difference. I just need to pick a place to start . . .
