a formidable lineage

 Good luck, Camilla! (photograph by Mira Silverman, San Miguel de Allende, 2012)
 Four years have passed since this picture was made, and the biggest changes are seen in the youngest and the oldest. One to five and 85 to 89 are times of great change. My mother is beautiful still and alert, but she no longer goes up the stairs to her roof, where this photograph was taken. Camilla is taking ballet, writing letters and is headed to kindergarten in the fall. Only my mother has been all of the ages pictured.

I have yet to see a picture of you getting out of the bathtub when you were a teen. Or the President of the Garden Club.

Your Mom.. spectacular.
