this is that period of time when keaton's elliptical, age-differential path is closer to me, and thus the "gettin' old" jokes at my expense diminish somewhat.
it's why i like her birthday so much.
every october ninth she closes within three years of me until late february when she orbits back out to four years.
she's like the moon really.
i see her more clearly when she passes closer to my age.
it's as if she becomes a bigger font of some sort.
and let me tell ya, what i see, i love.
clearly or blurred for that matter.
happy birthday keaton!
