kate5kiwis: sweet sixteen


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

sweet sixteen

beautiful woozie, i am blown away by you.
in the last month, you've:
sung a choral solo in front of two hundred.
repeated the performance at the interschool competition.
spent hours and hours rehearsing for your part in the school production.
sewn the costume for the lead actor.
got an "excellence" for another french oral exam.

you emerged from me with lungs already at full blast - i should've known then that you have talent.

i love the connection we have, the creativity that we share.
i love the way you see the world, the sunshine you radiate.
i love your beautiful alto, and i love the bounce that you bring to our lives.

joyeux anniversaire, ma chérie .

Happy Birthday. That is an impressive list of achievements, no doubt just the tip of the ice berg.

She's gorgeous - but then she's just like you!

Hope she had a great day.

She will go far I think (probably to Paris going by the quality of her French accent!)
