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.

Wonderful. And I love the photo.
Thanks. It was taken at a Russian dumpling bar in Seattle.
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.
I love this. It makes me think of my mother. I could only hope she would have written something similar.
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!
