two lifetimes

one for each of us.

here's a picture of my grandma. geraldine rock. gerry, as polly weirdly calls her. grandma rock, as virtually everyone else whose ever met her calls her. no matter any official family tie. have you ever seen her irish sweater? it's more a sweatshirt. and has 40 or so green hand-shapes on it. one for each grandkid and great-grandkid. she has 95 years. that's a wild lifetime. and then, i've loved her deeply for all 37ish of my years. that's another lifetime. life is short. life is long. life is pretty good.
