The Queen Mary 2 – an impressive sight. At dock next to The Boston Design Center
Walking along the dunes of Ogungquit Beach. Soft shades of grey, green and blue. Gentle sounds of surf, seagulls and wind. The sensation of cool sand moving between my toes.
I hate the question “did you have a good summer?” I don’t remember what it’s like to “have a summer” – today is my summer. It is enough.
I get promoted to Captain tomorrow – at sea in the Northern Arabian Gulf. I really wish you could be here, it would have meant the world to me to have you pin on my Captain’s eagles. I miss you.
My Dear Baby Brother – This bittersweet summer of sorrow and joy is made more joyous with this news, and yet sadder still by not being with you. I miss you terribly.
