    I enjoyed tha poem quite a bit. I can see the tinge of both sadness and hope in it.

    Thanks. I actually wrote the first draft at a hockey practice – the first draft came all in a rush as I watched the Small Boy trying so hard.

    You conspiring with him to bluster– I love that. I do it too with my six-year-old, aching for the day when she discovers that she is not the most beautiful or the most talented or the most intelligent human being on the planet… but hoping she remembers on that day that she is my absolute favorite her.
