Warm weather, blue skies and — yes — sun have filled the last few months. Elias turned one. It was a bittersweet moment that filled me with yearning and pride all at once. He's walking now and telling us about his world. "Da" and a determined pointing finger explains everything from the neighbor's dogs to the kitchen witch hanging from the pot rack.
Flowers in our garden are fantastic. We've "gotten the stink off" the Lowell's new boat — "Yomi II." And I've even found time to do a bit of local racing and realized I've still got it. Life is beautiful.
