The Month of May
This year I got to spend more time with her than I have since the year that she lived with us for a month, which was literally three decades ago. We ventured to Shanghai around the time of the Spring Festival. We were shepherded around by her son, my nephew, otherwise we would have been in difficult straights, but at no point did I really worry. We were in good spirits, we could navigate the subway, and we were able to really enjoy the place and the foreignness. Perfect, all in all. So it is fitting to spend a little time talking about her on this day, her birthday.
