At least, using photos it isn't hard to catch up. There are photos I haven't got because they are on my son's computer and we haven't done that email thing yet, but you'll get the idea(s).
Two big things and a lot of small things happened while I was away. One was two of my children experiencing Culebra for the first time. Their introduction happened during, and because of, the second thing, turning 60 years on the planet. Maybe weirdly, I've looked forward to being 60 since I was 20, for all sorts of reasons. I'm not disappointed. I'd say what sort of internal events I'm noticing, but that would jinx them, so I'm not. Let's just put it that counting to ten is a lot easier now, that living an imperfect life in an imperfect world feels more like a pair of old jeans than new, squeaky tight shoes. Keep in mind I rarely ever wear old jeans, or squeaky tight shoes...
|Sure glad they got these lines painted.|
|The second thing I do is take a beach walk, sometimes a long one, sometimes not so long. This was the first thing I saw this year. I'll take it!|

|Zach's birthday was coming up as well - there are a LOT of June birthdays around here - and somehow, up there in New York, Ann found a birthday card of Zach when he was a baby. He hasn't changed a bit.|
|I thought about wearing this tiara every day this year but there would be no room for my sunglasses.|
