Birth of Second Grandson

Call it "womb awe" or even "womb worship" but it's not simple envy. I don't remember even wanting to be a woman. But each of the three times I have been present at the birth of one of my children, I have been overwhelmed by a sense of reverence... It was quite suddenly, the first day of creation; the Goddess giving birth to a world... Like men since the beginning of time I wondered: What can I ever create that will equal the magnificence of this new life?

This entry is dedicated to our second Grandson, born this day, Sunday, March 13, 2005 in Vancouver, WA. He was 7lbs 9ozs and 21 inches of pure love. His Grandma was in the Birthing Room and was privileged to be present at his birth. We both had the distinct and profound honor of cradling him in our arms on his first day of life.
