The world didn’t end

Stotesbury Cup Regatta. Philadelphia, PA.

AND I witnessed my first regatta in the same day. Take that Harold!

A regatta is something I’ve always wanted to watch. It’s not so much a common affair in Texas, mostly because it doesn’t involve beer or football. There were 176 high schools and 868 boats, making it the largest high school regatta in the world. Whoever runs the show had done it a time or two. Everything was well run and on time, creating a certain cadence to the regatta, which was full of ceremony, rituals and of course, porta-potties. I should probably go wash my hands since they ran out of soap at 10 a.m. If the world didn’t end because of an early Judgement day via H. Camping, I’m surely going to perish from the collection of germs on my hands.

Goodbye for now. I hope you had a good non-Judgement day, also known as Saturday.

New York City, NY.

Age is strange. In many ways she’s 13 going on 30, in others 13 going on 5. Hormones have begun to rage, spurring curiosity about the opposite sex and gushy romantic comedies. The occasional zit makes its appearance on her porcelain skin, a reminder of the changes inside.
Stuffed animals rest on her bed and the purr of her beloved cat acts as balm for stressful school days. An incredible poet and writer. A dramatic sister and daughter. We share long hugs, good laughs and I know my soul is deeper and kinder because of her influence in my life. Regardless of who’s younger or older, I love the ways we affect one another.

That all would live long, but none would be old.

Ben Franklin

Goodbye for now. I love you regardless of where you fall on the number scale.
