time travel birthday
it is my wonderful younger cousin alexandra's birthday. today she turns 23, which is amazing since i remember her third birthday. it involved swimming with mermaids. this is an experience burned into my brain for life.
i wish that it was possible to give the gift of time travel. as a present i would take alexandra back to the moment when this picture was taken of our yiayia. we would have a birthday picnic and spend the afternoon talking about life and laughing. we miss our yiayia's voice.
so happy birthday dear one; here's to a miniholiday in jamaica plains boston year 1949!
