There are many things on this Earth.  Trees, buildings, animals, water, molecules of air, computer programs, board games, lint,  the list goes on and on.  Billions of things that press upon the surface of this planet and exist within its fragile biosphere, or in spite of it.

But now for the first time ever, there is something new on Earth that I helped create and that Lu is growing in her womb.

Our child has not touched the surface yet.  Somehow it appeared within her, through our union, through some mystical magic of the ancient Universe and soon it will live upon this Earth with us.

We are all this amazing.  We have all appeared here on this planet via that same unfathomable path.  The fact that we have all arrived here on Earth the exact same way makes it seem obvious and common.  It is both of those things.  But it is also totally fucking crazy and utterly unexplainable.

The longer I witness this, the more dumbfounded I become.  We are putting a new life on this planet because we love each other and we want to share that love, to transmit that love further along into Time.  Plus, we’re crazy, just like everyone else.  And having kids is one of the craziest things you can do, or so I’ve heard.
