Nine Days Without Baby - Day 2

On my first night away from home, both of my flights are delayed and I don’t arrive until 1 a.m. Wake-up is 6. So it seems I’m destined to get less than six hours sleep per night, regardless of whether River is around or not.

I enjoy a day of pure freedom. I walk down the brick streets, enjoy my surroundings, talk to people, go out for lunch, have time to write. When I see children playing in a fountain, I wish River was here so that he could feel the water streams against his skin. However, I’m pretty solid emotionally. I know he’s being well taken care of. I doubt that he notes my absence. I wonder how long I can remain apart from him and feel so calm.
