New Birth

I have a new niece. Her name is Alice. Alice Aglaya Hunt. I like the name, especially the middle one. Apparently Aglaya was a Greek goddess, but I like it for the character in Dostoevsky's Idiot- the most moving book in all the world.

It is also a miracle this baby was born in a hospital. They were meeting my oldest sister and her family at Lake Tahoe. When they got in the boat Sarah's water broke, spurring a quick evacuation and drive back to Reno. Crazy, and probably stressful, but they made it.

Congrats, Joe. Congrats, Sarah.

HEY! How very amazing! To be born on Tahoe. Only the most amazing place in the world. Does your fam live in Reno, if so why haven't we talked about it before?

I found your blog for the first time.
And I think you are a wonderful writer.
