I'm still enjoying the current Private Eye cover which bears the headline "Woman Has Baby". Nothing else except the sub heading, "Inside Other Stuff".
Sometimes I justify to myself the pedestrian nature of this blog, which is largely concerned with small things and unimportant events. I tell myself that small things and unimportant events can sometimes stand for larger things and point the way to more significant issues in our relationship with the world. On the other hand should I not content myself with the thought that they must stand on their own, significant for no other reason than they exist in a mystifying universe? A seed unfolds to become a stem and from the stem a leaf emerges; a blackbird lays an egg; the egg hatches, fledglings fly. Huge events.
