Long weekend. Good times with friends for my birthday. The offspring hasn't come forth yet, but he's making his presence known for sure, and a death in my extended family.
Not someone I was particularly close to, but deeply effected other members of my family who were, and sad none the less.
It was a small microcosm of life. Celebration, joy and sadness (and a little coconut cake).
Frankly it was all kind of exhausting.
I'll post more later this week.
