photograph I took of my cousin, Julia

Got to see my cousin, Julia, yesterday while visiting our grandfather. She’s 17 now, and beginning to look at colleges and thinking of what she wants to do with her life. I just can’t get over how fast the years have gone by. I remember when her biggest ambition was to nag her parents into buying her a Slurpee.

I’m a word freak. I like words. I’ve always compared writing to music. That’s the way I feel about good paragraphs. When it really works, it’s like music.

Today is my grandfather’s 89th birthday.

I took this photo of him a few weeks ago; I’ll be visiting him later today and will get a few more photos then.

Money talks, but it can’t sing and dance and it can’t walk.
