Happy 22 to My Little Girl

Well, after a nasty, rainy day yesterday, today was a stunningly beautiful fall day, on what would have been Katie’s 22nd birthday.

She would have been in her last year of undergrad, presumably with a good idea of what she wanted to do with herself. Careers, mentors, dreams, friends, lovers, kids…who can guess? Sure would be nice to know…

Thought of her today while in a store that first played a horrible, treacly version of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”—a song I never really liked, even when this season wasn’t my least favorite. Then they redeemed themselves by following it up with “Love Song” by The Cure. Katie would have loved it! Not that she was a huge Cure fan—I think Robert Smith was too much of an Emo cliché for her taste—but they have created a lot of good music, and she was always a believer in good music of any sort. And the juxtaposition would have had her retelling the story for months.
