Been a bit distracted the last few days with the long over due birth of our little boy Beren this sunday afternoon, only 16 days over! and threatening to come on and off for the past few weeks.

I'd been thinking on how this was going to impact on/destroy my practise until I realised that he's probably just what I need to help me be more present, as he is. Hopefully my common lack of 'presence' won't rub off on him.

Clare, my wife in the picture, said her sitting was invaluable during the birth and managed with only a bit of the old gas and air.
