Mothers create human civilization

So says fertile_jim in an excellent post on the subject. (You have to scroll down to the article on Jim Throws Gasoline on the Fire because his permalink takes you somewhere else.) I found him from a comment he left on Blog Sisters to a strong piece by Helen Razer, who has finally resurfaced.
On that subject, my grandson is on his way. According to my son-in-law (the best one in the world), my daughter went into labor at 3:30 this morning (which is when I woke up the first time). Her water broke around 6:30 (which is when I woke up the second time). Just a little synchronicity here, a little magical motherthing connection. So send good vibes out Boston way, everyone. I’m about to become a granny.

  1. thanks for the, uh, “props” as they say. did you read the comment i left at that cheesy nostalgia poem post?
    i notice that it’s a web site for greeley, colorado. have you ever been to greeley? it’s a cattle factory town, and smells like cowshit and death…every once in a while when you’re in the front range you’ll get this sudden whiff of holocaust, reel with nausea, and someone will say, “ahh, that wind from greeley…..”

  2. Congratulations to you and to your daughter and SIL. In honor of the impending birth, prayers and good vibes ascending…
