In Fall 2009 as my wife entered the late stage of pregnancy I asked several friends who are recent or long-time dads for advice on becoming a father myself. I interviewed all six over the phone, requesting two pieces of advice, one for first time dads in general and one for me specifically. I'd worked out a precise timeline for transcription, editing, and publication of the piece. But things didn't happen according to schedule. Photo by Leda Ward.
