Ives Herbert Reimer
born December 30th


He fits into the ordinary world the way miracles do - at first not at all, and then so easily, so certainly, that the ordinary world itself becomes miraculous.  We are transfixed.  I feel like his life grounds me.  The fact that he exists makes me both stronger and weaker.  He has bound us to each other, and to our ordinary lives. "A world full of wonder."
