heartbeat

with one comment

I listened to a 28 day old heart today—an impossibly tiny 150 beats per minute.  Infants are incredible things—little wailing balls of meat and love that fatten and stretch out into people.

Little meat ball, I am excited for you.  May your blankets be warm, your child years wondrous, and your first love true.  Also, may your defeats be revealing, your passions irrational, and your melancholy deep.  See it all, do it all, feel it all.  Have a good life little meat ball.
