Parent and Child


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"You are three. The echoes of splashing water and the melody of child-father play reach me from down the hall. The bedtime routine begins. I am writing, absorbed (mostly) in my work, finding inspiration in the insights that come from reflections on the day, a day spent engaged in the mundane but rich experience of taking care of you, playing with you, meeting your every need. Your laughs and giggles and statements of child wisdom offer background music to my writing."
