cedar is born

we arrived at the hospital as 2

hospital 1

& left as 3


& in between we witnessed a breathtaking miracle

cedar is born

...we are confronted everywhere with wonders; we see that the miraculous is not extraordinary but the common mode of existence. It is our daily bread. Whoever really has considered the lilies of the field or the birds of the air and pondered the improbability of their existence in this warm world within the cold and empty stellar distances will hardly balk at the turning of water into wine—which was, after all, a very small miracle.
