Nadia’s Birthday

Tuesday, March 30, 2010: Today would have been Nadia’s 86th birthday. Nadia, the old woman with the great big dark brown eyes, the dark circles under those eyes, the baggy pants and beat up snickers. I am so glad that 11 years ago, she and I celebrated her birthday. I bought some sandwiches de miga and a cake. We had tea and her adopted son showed up for a little while. Nadia, the woman who had once been someone quite important in the multinational pharmaceutical world. Her dogs were her real family.
