The month of birthdays.

I'm just thinking about how special this little boy is.
When I first met him as a teeny, flat-headed 2-month old fluffy blue bundle, I never realized he would become my brother, my dear friend, and one of the greatest joys of my life.
Happy 10 years, Ethan!

I love you, crazymonkeybuttonnose.

p.s. there are so many birthdays this month. I am excited about them. Except, I can also hear the death-toll of 22 growing ever-louder...


I want to carry you
and for you to carry me
the way voices are said to carry over water.

Just this morning on the shore,
I could hear two people talking quietly
in a rowboat on the far side of the lake.

They were talking about fishing,
then one changed the subject,
and, I swear, they began talking about you.

Billy Collins

that's all, folks
