A smile's worth




"Sweet Babe, in thy face
Soft desires I can trace,
Secret joys and secret smiles,
Little pretty infant wiles.
"

- excerpt from william blake's poem Sleep! sleep! Beauty Bright

Seeing Bryan smile at me, makes all the diaper changes, sleepless nights and wrecking of routine all worthwhile. The knowing smile of a little infant brings unspeakable joy. These days, he smiles not from reflex as the poem above suggests, but smiles reactionarily to our jabs and pokes. Really removes the dreariness out of a tired work day.
