She is lovely, my Eldest – bright, beautiful, a talented photographer and scary smart. And has a birthday today. Can it really be that many years since the early Saturday morning when she joined us with a squall and curious look? If I blink too fast, I might wake up and see that more years have gone by.
Since she is at sea with me, I can hardly suggest that you send her an email. On the other hand, she could always read them when she gets home.
I hardly remember whether or not I thought birthdays were all right to celebrate or not when I was in my 30s. In any case, it didn’t make much sense to bring anything heavy with me so that she could turn around and haul it back home (my suitcase to her suitcase, where is the logic in that?)
But still, I did bring a few small things since one can’t really count the cruise as a present completely since I get to participate with her. Hummm, what to do for next year?
