My 70th Birthday


I feel deep gratitude to my sister Ellen who dared me to dream my birthday dream and made it come true.
Many thanks to cousins Richard and Annie Thorner who hosted me for an entire magical week.
And to cousin Debbi Waldman Pearson who agreed to host a pile of cousins she'd never met!
