Isn’t it strange how life won’t flow, like a river, but moves in jumps, as if it were held back by locks that are opened now and then to let it jump forwards in a kind of flood?
Happy birthday, Anita Desai! The Indian novelist is a wordsmith in more than one language. Because of her German mother, she grew up speaking German at home, but spoke Bengali, Urdu, Hindi, and English everywhere else.
Today is also my Mom’s birthday! I’d like to wish her a day as amazing as she is! Happy Birthday to the best woman I know! XOXOX 😘❤️
Everyone, make it a great day! I’m off to bake birthday cupcakes with my daughter for Mom!
All My Best,
