What an exciting weekend. We said hello to Alba on Saturday evening and then spent the rest of weekend looking at her. Mum and baby are doing great.
I emailed someone on the weekend about Alba and the loss of Steve Jobs. I really like his words about both events. He said, “One treasure leaves this world, and another one enters! There is nothing more enchanting than one’s first child!”
Enchanting sums up the whole experience for me. I love magic, I love the power of words, and enchanting is a great word.
So while we welcomed Alba, people all over the world mourned the loss of Steve Jobs. You might not own any Apple products but Steve has influenced your life by pushing the envelope of technology design and use.
Steve made a BIG difference, not many of us can make one that big. But my hope is that my treasure will be as enchanted by the world as I am and make a difference in her own way. She already has for me so she is off to a great start.
Have a great week. I’m off to be with the gorgeous girl below.
