Death haunts a lot of us, that fear of loss. But look at this baby. Every day, gathering more and more of the world into herself. She tries to pick every flower, saves every new word that sails past, learns to move her body like the pro she’ll become. Growing into the world, she already can’t imagine herself without it. Yet she once was, and someday will be again.
