An Excerpt From a Work Intended For New Parents

The name you give your child is temporary. Babies will find their own true names, given time. Do not be fooled by their unintelligible yammering. Baby talk is a net they deploy in the air to snag their one true name. Once they catch it and recognize it for what it is, they will hold fast to it forever. Many will forget, as they grow, this name they found in the ether. But towards the end of a long life, the name will come back. Their last gift, their first memory returned, the syllables like the beat of the earth


That's beautiful.
