In the title essay of his book ''Fathers Playing Catch with Sons,'' the poet Donald Hall writes:''Baseball is fathers and sons . . . the generations, looping backward forever with a million apparitions of sticks and balls. . . . Baseball is fathers and sons playing catch, lazy and murderous, wild and controlled, the profound archaic song of birth, growth, age and death. This diamond encircles what we are . . . joining the long generations of all the fathers and all the sons.''Yeah, yeah. And what about the daughters, bub?

In an instant Russell and Kim Hurd went from planning their daughter's wedding to arranging her funeral. Nearly four years ago, Heather L. Hurd was killed by a tractor-trailer truck driver who was texting while driving and slammed into nine cars on a Florida highway. She was 26, engaged to be married and working at her dream job at Walt Disney World. The Harford County parents have channeled grief over the loss of their only daughter into activism that has helped spawn legislation against distracted driving.

Q: I think my daughter may be having sex even though she says she's not. If I take her for a gynecological exam, can the doctor tell me if she's still a virgin?A: It would be very difficult for any physician to answer your question based on a physical exam. Presumably, you are wondering whether her hymen is intact as a sign of virginity. However, there is considerable variation in the anatomy of the hymen during adolescence, making it an unreliable indicator of virginity.Your question raises important points about your relationship with your daughter.

It's not as damn fine as a good cuppa joe or some cherry pie from the Double R diner, but ''The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer,'' by Jennifer Lynch (Pocket Books, $8.95) is still a valuable companion for the true "Twin Peaks" fanatic.Of all the characters in the supersonic prime-time soap opera, we know the least about the murdered Laura Palmer. So Lynch, the daughter of series creator David Lynch, fills in the gaps with a diary that stretches from her 12th birthday until a few days before her death.

If you are an aspiring first novelist who is not also a supermodel, senator, serial killer or TV anchorperson, you face two difficult tasks: You must actually write your own book, and you must rely primarily on literary merit for publicity. And you can't look to publishers for much encouragement. It is easier for them to create instant novelists from the casts of sitcoms or Court TV.All the same, real writers keep emerging from the vast untelevised wilderness, with nothing to distinguish them but the quality of their books.

It is just under a year until our wedding, and I can't help but think about how things will change or how things will stay the same. Sure, we will file our taxes differently and my name will change but what will the main differences be? I think it's important to hold on to those who are closest to me now. I know this can be hard wihen starting new families but it is so important.  I may become a wife but I'll still be a daughter, I'll still be a sister, I'll still be a friend. So many people let marriage change all of this and exclude themselves from others or only want to be with their significant others, and, to me, this is just unacceptable.

Q. I have 8-year-old and 4-year-old daughters who are as different as night and day. About a year ago, I separated from their father, then got divorced. He was a lousy father who never spent any time with them alone. The girls and I now live in a house by ourselves. Their father gets them Tuesday and Thursday for about two hours and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. He has a live-in girlfriend but claims they are just friends. The 8-year-old is afraid to spend the night with Daddy and doesn't even like to go over there.
