Today is my sister Julie's birthday. It's really extraordinary: when she was fifteen and wore thin-rimmed glasses, people thought she was the mother in the posed portrait of us four children. But when she was married at thirty, she looked twenty-one. Julie ages gracefully, and still looks terrific. Perhaps she's found the secret of that Brad Pitt movie last year.
When I was a child I think I used to call her JU-dah. Anyway best wishes to my beautiful older sister....beautiful in form and in spirit.
