Yesterday was my great-aunt's 80th birthday. Today is Spoon's 5th birthday. 75 years between them. I love that these two days are so close--two of my favorite people and I get to celebrate them both! It's amazing to think of what the one has seen, and wonder what the other will see. And, actually, one of these days I must introduce them. I think they'd love each other: Spoon would be captivated by everything in my aunt's home: the colors, the paintings, the big gold couch and the pile of teddy bears. My aunt would be amazed at Spoon's perceptiveness, and impressed by her manners. Of course, neither of them use the internet, so they won't be getting this note.
Hurrah! Happy birthday!
