Pregnancy Watch 2001


Well, in the midst of the world falling apart, people losing their lives, and the shattering of our sense of safety...a little good came into the world. A little girl. Kaitlynn Rose, 6 lbs 4 oz, born Wednesday morning, the 12th. During all the horror, I forgot about her, forgot about this little girl I called Lucrecia for at least 6 months (mostly to torment Lynn), this little girl I watched expand my co-worker's belly. Toward the end of this past week everyone started asking me if I'd heard from Lynn, wanting to know how she was doing. Brief curiosity would flit through my mind as I told them I hadn't heard. My mind was too occupied by the immediacy of other events to really register anything else. Then Lynn showed up on my computer tonight and I instant messengered with her, found out that Lucrecia had entered the world, of course under an assumed name, and I felt so overwhelmingly happy for her. She has this new joy in her life, this gorgeous little creature to care for, and never once did either of us mention New York or terrorists or anything beyond the world of her little family. She has something precious to think about and doesn't need any of the rest of the world to intrude. I hope Kaitlynn never has to know what the world was like when she arrived.

There are some micro-organisms that exhibit characteristics of both plants
and animals. When exposed to light they undergo photosynthesis; and when
the lights go out, they turn into animals. But then again, don't we all?
