So today Joshua Granot turns 15. It has certainly been an interesting year! I’ve seen a lot of growth and changes in someone who is working hard to become the person they want to be. I couldn’t be happier.

Last year I wrote that our children our only on loan to us for a little while, that they are ours for only a short time. Every year that hits home just a bit faster, a little closer. But that’s OK, I wouldn’t miss out on this for anything. Happy Birthday Joshua, I love you and wish you all the best. (Also, it’s OK to come out of your dungeon for cake and coffee. I know they said shelter in place, quarantine, etc, but they meant don’t leave your house, not your room).

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
