I wouldn't care that they didn't realize it was a significant day. I'd just try to drink everything in and create memories.
    Make sure you drink everything in today!

    I have this rule for myself. Whenever I think of a loved one, I try to call them if even just for a few minutes because I often think about the reality that I will likely be attending the funerals of many of the people I now love. Last Thanksgiving when my grandmother introduced me to a friend, she said, "This is the one I told you about. He's the only grandchild who ever calls me."

    She doesn't say it in a way that sounds complaining.

    Usually when I call she says, "I was just thinking of you this morning!" She thinks we have some sort of psychic link, which I allow her to believe.

    Wow! That sounds like a blast.

    I do think that inside, we're all still children. In fact, I think a lot of healing and staying healthy is getting in contact with this essential self. Play is joy. Joy is life.

    We used to play pirates too. The big swing on our swingset (the kind with seats opposite each other) was our main ship. Usually me and my best friend would be Bluebeard and Blackbeard while his little sister was stuck being the lesser known and less cool Whitebeard or Redbeard. You had to be careful getting off the main boat onto one of the other swings (lifeboats) because if you touched the grass you had fallen into the water.

    Sounds like a wise man, your grandfather.

    There isn't much I did as a kid that I'm not still capable of doing now (aside the whole.. not paying bills and having every meal made for me on a timer, etc.)... But!!

    I do miss having other people willing to play with me. People get so sucked up into their adult lives (sometimes necessary, sometimes out of habit) that they forget to slow down and just play. I've all but given up asking people to play anymore.
