The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth.

So tiny. So pink. So beautiful.

After 22 hours of labor; she enters the world to "oohs"and "ahhs."Dazed, I hold the scissors where the doctors show me. I can hardly bring myself to to cut the cord. I hold back the lump in my throat as blue liquid oozes from the stump.

After a flurry of motion, she's in my lap. My throat tightens. I see my future in her dark eyes. She cries out. There is no past or future - only now.

So tiny. So pink. So beautiful.
