I realized today what the whole 'son, tree, book' deal is about. I was listening to a song about a night like this in a thousand years' time... and it hit me. People like me, we stand no chance of being around in that time. We are simply not big enough. (So it's probably a good idea to feel big while you're here and now). A book, a tree, a kid, though... They may stand a chance. Me, I am partial to daughters, but it's the principle of the thing.
