    It's not a contest for most quintessential Hubski post!
No, because if it were it would be this post: ...... (just spent 10 minutes searching for the post where you say you'll never get married) Dammit! Couldn't find it.

Our baby was born. She's beautiful, healthy and awesome. Just like my other two kids, the first song she ever heard outside the womb was "I Will" by the Beatles as sung by me.

We spent the night in the hospital and my wife and I watched the Tom Petty documentary. This little girl entered the world to the Beatles and Tom Petty. My kids and I have been listening to the entire Cat Stevens catalog in heavy rotation.

Here is the little one:

Humility is fine. Shame is not. Resist shame.

Hell yes kb! (almost sent this using your actual name, such was my excitement. You have been working so hard towards this opening. It's phenomenal to see someone set a goal as lofty as this one and achieve it. I know how much it takes to accomplish such things. It's Herculean.

I read below that you are the one that took the photos for the center's art. They're amazing. Also, in a previous photo, I saw the living wall. -Well done!

Hell, I'd have a baby there. Maybe I'll swing by in October with my wife. Turns out, we have a daughter on the way ;-)

Thanks for the inspiration lil. Anyone, feel free to add to this: rezzeJ, steve, flac, coffeesp00ns, zebra2

Don't give advice to poets

They'll be living in your house

Before you know it

They'll be sharing your bed

They'll be filling your head

With some nonsense about wind

Don't give advice to poets

They'll leave you with no words left

And you'll know it when you can't say your own name

For fear that its a lame expression of your "truth"

They're all imagery and meter

She'll look cute but you don't need her

She'll start wearing your clothes

And swear that they're all hers

(she'll take your pets her clerics)

Don't give advice to (no) poets

mike, this was a fantastic one. Thank you! I couldn't help but lock in to the overarching message of "doing" and "creating." I took your advice and I wrote an original piece of music titled, "Mike" for your #meethubski. I hope you are cool with that.

Thanks for all you've done around here by just participating and encouraging people, including me. Cheers!

I imagine that the day he was born, it was cold, rainy and gray outside. The hospital yard was full of ravens And beneath the floor boards of the delivery room, the doctors all swore they heard the low, constant thud of a beating heart.

I was at dinner with a few born again Christians that all suggested, under the guise of "not really though," that an "atomic bomb," is a potential solution.

My reply was this:

"WWJN"

Confused faces.

"Who would Jesus nuke?"

Silence.

We love you. You are like Hubski's surrogate sister/daughter/hellian and we are all happy to see you happy.

He's a good guy too. Super talented. I approve. You two seem very well suited for one another. I see a bright future! I shall toast to you both tonight as tonight is "date night." -you'll see... 11 years from now, you'll long for "date night."

For the record, I was totally the first person to badge this.
