…through some old posts on an old blog, I ran across this post written back in 2007.
I still think of Macy now and then. Was she the one that got away? I hope that wherever she is, that she is well and happy.
Something was said at work today that reminded me of this:
“For my part, I refuse to hold decisions made in their youth against them, because I wouldn’t want to be held in contempt for all the decisions made by me in my youth.”

“My father started to cry and I realized that he never had cried when we listened to that carol before, when my grandfather was still with us. ‘Why are you crying?’ I once asked him and he said he cried because he was the oldest in our family, that he remembered how it was when he was in the pack, singing those beautiful carols, and he cried because he was the next man in our family to die.”
