Oct 3, 2002

Yesterday was the first day ever in which I left the apartment before Anna was awake and arrived home after she’d fallen asleep for the night. A whole day without interacting with my darling daughter. I was disturbed by this. For the last year and more I was with Anna constantly, her stay-at-home-dad. My classes and studies at UNC are invigorating and exhausting, and so the moments that I do get with Anna these days I simply cherish. I keep wondering if village life is better.
