Four grown kids, six 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!
My days of sharing GD photos are numbered, I think. You can see quite clearly that there's a pretty definite person, albeit a small one, here, and I become increasingly aware of boundaries.
But we're not quite there yet, so here are a few shots from Grandad and Nana's day out with Nola yesterday.
She modeled a sweater I'd knit her (top photo --there were signs it's been machine-washed, so she's worn it some -- a good sign)
Played with a rockin' chair (I love that happily mischievous smile)
Rode an AquaBus to Granville Market (love the solemn wonder)
And chowed down on powdered doughnut holes after watching them being made through the same fabulous window at Lee's Doughnuts that I used to hold her mom up to, some 30+ years ago (You're my mommy's mommy, right Nana?). That I got to do it then was already such a privilege. To have this second chance? Beyond the telling . . .
