Four grown kids, five delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
How cute is Nola? Well, you tell me! She arrived at my birthday dinner Sunday wearing this hat which I think emphasizes her gorgeous eyes and perfectly-shaped eyebrows rather well. Her aunt scooped her up right away and barely let me near her all evening (kidding, Rhiannon, sort of . . .)
Other pretty growing things include this rhodo, 'Temple Bells,' which is finally settling in enough to put on a bit of a show.
