A Time for Celebration

One of our good friend's just had a baby boy: 9 lbs, 5 oz. The kid just missed St. Patrick's Day! His pops couldn't keep his eyes off of him.

Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)--John Lennon
"Close your eyes, Have no fear, The monsters gone, He's on the run and your daddy's here, Beautiful,Beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful Boy"

On our way home, driving through LA and reading Tim Dlugos (I wasn't driving/busted my glasses a couple of days ago), I came across this line "Beside the path, the wren that lights in brush / sounds like a footstep in the gathering day." Sat in silence for several minutes after that.
We'll be in San Francisco for a few days later this week. We have a couple of things scheduled, but if anyone knows of anything interesting going on, please tell.
