felt maya move from katie at the corn farm. i missed her today at the park. i was waiting for andrew to get done for his interview at the National Security Administraion at 10 am. i bought maya her first book, a paint-by-numbers something about romeo & juliet. i got her a poster of wavy farm animals, the elephant in the middle, and i kissed her one more time before putting on david’s motorcycle helmet. i bumped into a brick wall and said it was easier knocking my head against one, with a shell for a head.
