Happy birthday N!
I hope you’ll forgive me but this is one for you.
I was trying to think of a way to celebrate this momentous occasion and that’s when it struck me that this might be a good time to thank you.
You’ve stuck with this little blog over the years, using it to check in on me from afar and to keep up with my life when you have so much going on in yours. Thank you for that. Thank you also for introducing me to black olives. Thanks for showing me that aiming high for grad school was not a completely ridiculous waste of time. Thanks for our conversations about a young Sean Connery and Betty Boothroyd.
My only regret is that I’ve not yet seen you do nearly enough tap dancing…
