Babies!

It seems that babies are the new black (cool, for those of you who were confused by that statement). Besides those that are already roaming around on their own two feet (or hands and knees), I just came back from a baby shower and found out that two other friends are pregnant.

Not having a "biological clock", I am not necessarily feeling the "tick, tick, tick". Still, it's a relative thing... As those with whom you've shared many life experiences start going through such a transition it's hard not to consider when or if you'll share a similar experience. I certainly don't have an answer to that questions. At least it's a question that I'm willing to keep open. There have been times when I've come out against the idea of bringing a child into the world. I'm not going to lie, I fear what the state of the world will be 30 years from now. Hell, I fear the state of the world 10 years from now. But that is not reason enough not to raise a child. Then again, maybe I need to play the devil's advocate and ask myself what is reason enough TO raise a child. I'm not going to hum-and-haw over it while I type but it's worth considering as part of this growth process. I'l be sure to let you know what I come up with.
