Today is 3rd February, 2013, and it is Little Eli's 4th full day in our lives. Eli's birth has made me more conscious than ever of my own mortality. For somebody who was acutely aware of this from a young age, this is a daunting prospect. I look at the small child lying in his bouncer, and the circle of life is clear. He will grow up. I will grow old. One day we will all be gone from this earth. And what will be left? Nobody knows. All I know is I want to live my life with joy and fulfillment. And so begins the Story of Eli.
