5 YEARS AGO




Five years ago today I watched through the hospital window as the sun crept up over roof tops and eucalypts. It's light was was pure gold - thick and heavy and lusty. Time stood still as it's shimmering glow turned the sky from ink to indigo to cobalt.

At last a spattering of crisp white cloud took it's place above our heads. It was 1:30pm and it was time for you to come.

Five years have flown and dragged and flown again, just like 38 hours of labour.

Happy Birthday, Darling one.
