December 8th - A Miles Birthday

Our Miles boy is 4 today and I always get quite nostalgic about the occassion. It takes me back to when Carrie and I began blazing our path and Miles was a part of our creation. One minute before 5 p.m. four years ago our lives became richer in ways that are impossible to describe. The amount of love Miles brings to this world and everyone he encounters is the coolest thing I could have ever imagined the night of 12.8.04 when I wondered how Miles would alter the course of this very full world of folk. Now that I have a full boar Miles birthday to look forward to, I feel my actual birthday has been diminished to something less significant. Miles is now tucked away on the bus awaiting another huge day at school as we marvel at the enormity of who he is and how far he has come. Of the very many things I dig about little Miles, I'm glad that he loves music, watches little TV, smiles a lot, loves sushi, gives love to everyone he meets without prejudice and has a thirst for this existence that is all together refreshing and enlightening. Carrie, Zen and I are bound by the thickness of his love and dig each and every moment we have with him .. especially on this day. Happy Birthday, little Miles ...

I hope that you will consider the possibility of archiving making this available to Miles when he is older.
