When I designed my blog, and chose for my banner picture a nest with two eggs, I had several things in mind:
- A bird’s nest is a safe home for precious things – my virtual bird’s nest would be a safe home for my thoughts and opinions.
- A bird’s nest is an eclectic place, built with diverse materials – I always meant this to be an eclectic space, in which I could range from the political to the personal and back.
- A bird’s nest is a gathering place – and here you all are, gathered around.
Now I think it is time to add a new dimension to the symbolism of the picture above.
That’s an 8 week ultrasound picture of the twins currently chillin’ in my uterus.
