9/11 and MY WELL-WORN BIRTHDAY SUIT

Today’s my day. It’s been an extraordinary day in so many of the last 11 years. 1999 was my 50th (and I partied like it was 1999!), it’s been 10 years since my dad died on that day, and of course the world was forever changed in 2001. I prayed for a peaceful day in 2002 and was graced when my future husband flew from Miami to Los Angeles to surprise me with a plane towing an exquisite ribbon in the sky and his presence. Last year I officially released the first single from my very first CD on 9/9/09 and sang the song on a fabulous cruise ship on my 60th. So many of the days have been truly momentous if not auspicious.

My suit has served me well throughout the years and for all that it has sustained, I’m grateful. I thank God, Mom & Dad, Rock & Roll, and a healthy attitude. I know my dad expected me to celebrate life on the 11th, his & mine, when he chose that day to pass. Loss is never easy but I will continue to honor him and all who have been born & died on this day. And I will celebrate life.

    Caryn, I couldn’t write to you until just now because I had no access to my computer. I thought about you so much yesterday, and about your father, of course. But I didn’t realize in how many other ways the 11th is so important to you. Anyway, happy birthday, dear cousin of mine! I love you so much!!!!
