    Once in a small wood
    she kissed me
    pitying a piteous boy
    a broken arm
    with a writeable cast.

    She signed the cast

    I walked home on the tops of trees

    My son is nine.

    Nine, 9, neuf, niente, neuve and so on.

    In preparing for his birthday last night this number hit me like a tsunami. It is nine years ago since he arrived; how has it gone so quickly? It seems such a short time ago, and yet he is so grown up. And in an equivalent length of time he will officially be an adult and then ...
