it’s me birthday

yup. 44 today. young as a spring chicken and old as dirt, all at once.

update: this morning, my wonderful 13 year-old daughter, liesl, gave me a painting she’d created for me, then played edelweiss on her viola for me. she’d gone to a lot of work for this, buying the sheet music, and learning the song without me knowing. i sang edelweiss to her every night when we were putting her to bed from birth to about four years-old.
