Happy Birthday, Carrie Lee

An honoring of 77 years of life. Carrie Lee was born September 12th, but her birth certificate is marked September 14th because the doctor wasn't able to make his way to her to sign the certificate for 2 days. And so she celebrates her birthday twice.

I told her I really wanted to document her. And I was so gracious when she allowed. As we were chatting (I love the sound of her voice. I missed it. She loved me and took care of me when I was away from my family) her grandson and his family came by to visit. Here is "Granny", with her youngest great-grand baby. She has generated a lineage of 7 children, 9 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren.

I've become so fascinated with life. Life is so precious, in all of its ages and stages. I love the energy of the young and the old. Young vibrant energy and aged calm energy. The vessels of the young waiting to be filled, and those of the aged overflowing of wisdom . Life should be esteemed, new life and old life alike. And much can be learned from both. Taking it in.
