buon natale dorothy!

today is our grammie's 90th birthday. we are blessed to have this lady in our life for so very long, continuing to contribute her witchy wisdom, east-coast sarcasm, political pith, tough love, book recommendations, ready snacks, elegant carriage (even with her new addition of a red walker), resistance to conformity, connection to "her mother" (god), and all of the other wonderful things past and present (including delicious cream-and-pesto soaked pasta with potatoes and string beans -- sigh).

we're in santa rosa today, and even though the party was sunday night today will be a special day. three generations (us, our mom, and dorothy) will putter around this tony suburb, make a big deal of the birthday girl, and hold this moment in time up to the light like a piece of stained glass.
