I see my nephew Ryan,
a small boy at the beach,
playing with the wind on a string.


















Thirty years later,
I see his son Kelvin at the beach,
deep in the throes of wonder and delight, discovering a world that's only two years old...


Father and son.
Some see a resemblance.
I see a continuation.

Happy birthday, Kel.

Happy memories, Ryan.
