I am pleased, delighted,…

I am pleased, delighted, and overwhelmed to announce the birth of Zoe Ann Lalitha Edwards, daughter of Roshani and Tom, 8 pounds and several ounces, practically-my-niece and altogether perfect! Mother had a seven hour labor, which I am told is remarkably easy for a first child, though it doesn't sound easy at all to me, and while she's more than a little exhausted, she and Zoe are fine and healthy and wonderful. Tom is, of course, utterly thrilled. Me too! Please take a moment and join me in good wishes for the family, and celebration of a fabulous new little person in the world. (She seems to spend most of her time crying and eating and sleeping these days, but give her a couple decades. I predict great things...)

Dragons in the Mountains
(zoe's lullaby)

audio (1M)

There are dragons in the mountains, love
There are dragons in the trees;
There are dragons under silver stars
And sailing stormy seas.

    Close your eyes, my darling girl,
    Close your eyes, my weary child,
    For the world is more than you can see
    Oh, the world is strange and wild.

There are unicorns with silver feet
Walking 'cross the shining sands
There are unicorns with spiraled horn
In dark and hidden lands.

    Close your eyes, my darling girl,
    Close your eyes, my weary child,
    For the world is more than you can see
    Oh, the world is strange and wild.

There are rocket ships up on the moon,
There are ships that go to Mars.
Sweet ships that sail far from this Earth;
They search for distant stars.

    Close your eyes, my darling girl,
    Close your eyes, my weary child,
    For the world is more than you can see
    Oh, the world is strange and wild.

There are dragons in the mountains, love
There are dragons in the trees;
There are dragons under silver stars
And sailing stormy seas.
