This past weekend we, together with friends D. and his son R., went to a corn maze. It was a lot of fun, with the cornfield in the shape of Washington State, the barn kittens, the hay bale maze complete with slide, duck races, and pig show. I liked seeing the baby alpaca and all the rabbits, and the hay ride was fun too. But the best part was getting to hang out with this amazing pair of dudes. All together, we posed as a family unit for the purposes of entering under a single ticket. We were: joined together by birth, adoption and fostering, from Jewish, Muslim, and Ethiopian Orthodox Church heritages, gay and straight, and a passel of ethnicities all rolled into a single family for the day. How cool to recognize the many currents that brought us together, world over.
