Daniel was here with Jill to celebrate his birthday the other night but because she is leaving for Russia in a couple days they headed back to Cleveland-they had lessons to teach and things to do. So Dan won’t be around for cake today.I wrote a long bit about Dan- his music, his accomplishments, all of those things that make a mother proud. Now I’ve scrapped it because I know he just doesn’t want to be exposed like that, even if it is with love and admiration.
So I will only say these two things: Dan is the most right hearted and decent person I have ever met.
The other thing is, listening to him tease and tussle with Jill in the kitchen the other night, I realized that Dan has grown up and is moving on. Not without a small exquisite pain, this makes me incredibly happy. Happy Birthday, Daniel.
