Musings on writing, parenting, and other saintly pursuits.
"How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one's name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!"

Robert Emmett Bowen III, June 18, 1965-August 30, 2010
I cannot imagine anything sadder or harder to grasp. Bob Bowen, my soulmate, friend, and coparent was severely injured in a brutal hit-and-run incident while riding his bicycle in Manhattan on Thursday, August 26. Despite exceptional care at New York Presbyterian's Trauma Center, we lost him Monday night, August 30, just before midnight.
He was loved by so many, and Bobby, Stella, and I are receiving so much love right now. This is only one example. And here is another.
