From Death to Birth

"You know that the beginning is the most important part of any work, especially in the case of a young and tender thing; for that is the time at which the character is being framed." --Plato

Congratulations to Adam Bernstein, rock star obit writer for The Washington Post. On November 23, he became the father of Santiago Walker Bernstein, a healthy 7 lb.-5 oz. baby boy.

(Side note to Adam: Your son and I share the same natal day, and the same moniker. As such I offer this small bit of advice for his future: "Breathe, live, love and inspire.")
