Paul's birthday

I've been being an aunt in California. Babies are wonderful and exhausting. I have wanted to be with the baby and Sarah every moment.

Paul's birthday was 21 April, and we went to the "Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine," in Pacific Palisades. It's a lovely place, dedicated by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1950. Paul and his friend Robin had gone there together several times. The baby was entranced by the water. Not really the sight of the swans or the many turtles or enormous koi, but just the sight of the water. She fussed when Sarah left the water's side.

Some of Gandhi's ashes are here.
