98/365 Clare now

Eleven and-a-half years later Clare and I are still close, even though she lives on the other side of the country. She’s smart, talented, a brilliant writer, an avid reader and a roof-top urban-gardener. She graduates in June. After that, who knows? Olympia is home, but she’ll need to follow opportunities. I miss her every day; we talk often.

  1. It’s great you two are so close… and Skype and FaceTime make distances kind of disappear, at least compared to how things were in the “old days.”

    • Oddly, we don’t use any video messenger. We talk on the phone like the olden days but without the long-distance charge. Oh and text and email.

  2. It’s wonderful that you’re still close. And wonderful that she has these opportunities.
    Seattle is so sophisticated compared to where I live. I’m right near a Russian seminary (onion-topped buildings and all) and I love dumplings but I never heard of a Russian dumpling bar!
