My sister Chris lays emotional claim to my pictures of seagulls.
“They’re my birds,” she says of the ones that were in the big book of pictures I once gave her for Christmas.
In honour of Chris’ birthday today, I went out to make gull pictures. I found the one above, and a different picture below, to remind us of the fisherman who left a hole in our collective universe.
This is Chris’ first birthday with no “Happy Birthday darling” from her Daddy, punctuating the day.
Much love, big sis.
