Still another sweet vacation photo. I really like this one.
I loved my aunts dearly when I was growing up. They lived far away and we didn’t see them often, but when we did, they totally spoiled us. Many years later I was shocked to learn that our cousins, who also lived far away but in a different direction, had all those same experiences and thought of those aunts and the toys and special places in that house as “theirs.”
It was like discovering that there really is a parallel universe, where other people are impersonating you and claiming what is rightfully yours.
