Golden Jubilee

This weekend I turn 50! The hot flashes haven't been bad, it's the nightsweats that get me! Here's a picture of Brooke and I as wee children. She was my best friend at this age and the two of us were like Scout and Dill in To Kill a Mockingbird. Her mom was an artist and always used to take us around, taking pictures and painting us. I can still remember how that deck smelled (pine trees and oil paint). Do you ever wonder what happened to your childhood friends?

I met my best friend from childhood decades later in a labyrinth in the woods on a small island off the coast of Washington. It was surreal, and when she cried she looked exactly like her 10 year old self (that was the last time I'd seen her).

Best wishes for happiness on all your birthdays!
