Making Light of Things


It’s Min’s birthday today.

Two years ago I’d have taken her to Applebee’s. Wenyang, Clifton, Carol and Zhenlin would have joined us. Now Wenyang is in Japan and Clifton is in Spain. Carol and Zhenlin are still in Tucson. They’re done studying.

Min wouldn’t have made a fuss over her birthday - she never does. But I’d have made sure we had some ice cream and DVDs anyway.

Happy birthday, sister.
