going back to work

Although sleep-deprived, I found my two months of maternity leave as one of the most colorful and adventure-filled time of my life. There is no greater joy than to spend each waking moment with one's offspring, to see her grow each day, to clean her poopoos, to feed her, to soothe her to sleep, to hold her in one's arms and to see her smile.

I will soon be going back to work, back to the daily grind, to the recording of history, to the rewriting of life, to the nuisances, the smart and silly interviews and everything else that goes with the job. I hope I can still do it. I hope I can still write...Yes, I hope I haven't lost it.

In the meantime, let me share with you photos of me and my little angel.
