A Special Day

This is an important day.
It's the birthday of two of the most important people in my life.

If she were still alive, my mom would be eighty-eight years old today.
Wasn't she beautiful?


The Professor celebrated his birthday today, too.

He's still as handsome now as he was when I shot this photo of him sitting on the steps of our bush house in Papua more than twenty years ago.

Happy Birthday!

I love the photo of your mom, and the professor is so ruggedly handsome. Someday you should write some posts about your life before you came to live on the coast.
