I've often heard people discuss pro-creation as a form of cheating death but that particular motivation has never been high on my list. Even now that my son is a real live boy instead of theory I don't really see him as my bid for immortality.

But when my Grandfather passed away this weekend after a great glorious long life of plane flying, card playing, and crooked smiles holding Michael in my arms was of great comfort. Nothing makes you feel better about loosing one life then holding in your arms all the promise of a new life.

Its hard to feel sad when a 9 month old goes crawling after a mechanical monkey on wheels across the living room floor and I know that Grandpa would not have wanted us to be sad for long.
