how you've grown

Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.
Thomas Mann (b. 6 june 1875-1955)

today is the 30th birthday of my daughter! last year when em turned 29 I put up a birthday post, since the sentiments still holds true no sense repeating myself!

happy birthday em!

how you've grown, by the 10,000 maniacs. not only is the title of the song is so fitting but when I think of em's childhood and the 'soundtrack' I have of that period, a few songs by the 10,000 maniacs are right in there (however, mainly from this album). I wonder what groups and songs are on em's childhood soundtrack - sounds like a perfect conversation topic. I'm sure we share a few tunes - for sure this and several songs from here .


photo: taken in 1987 at em's 8th birthday party. it seems like yesterday. yes, definitely issues with the time-space continuum!

Happy birthday, Em!

And Kim, those are some really good shared musical memories. I'm still kinda tapping the toes from the Paul Simon & Ladysmith Black Mombazo video!
