At 11:45 last night, Alice Claire Wilcox- first daughter (and queen) of one of my best friends in the whole wide world - Miguel, sprouted into earth. Miguel and I have known each other for many many years, since I was a reckless 17 year old creature tossing my bloody tampons at heckling men. We've had heaps of creative exchange, musical banter, railroad apartment tippy tap typewriting, and hot summer barefooted walks across the Williamsburg Bridge. Mister Miguel and his fine lady Sarah are going to be some pretty special mammalian parents. I love you guys!
