Today, we should be celebrating the 29th birthday of my baby brother, Howard, instead of mourning 9 years without him. But I’m posting this picture of How and our Mom as a followup to my blog about going on in search of joy. So today, dance for Howard, and for the 20s that he missed. I am joyful that I get to dance, even if never again with his broad hands to steady me.
