I swore I was not going to cry this time and I damn near made it. Then like all of her other books a flood of lost memories poured out at the most inopportune time. I wept in public, again, for the days and roads gone forever and the fading memories of carrying my baby around in her Bjorn reading and vacuuming, the nights she still fit and fell asleep on my chest and the countless times I calmed her down swinging her in my arms and singing, "The vagabond who's rapping at your door. Is standing in the clothes that you once wore. The carpet too is moving under you. And it's all over now baby blue."
