Wow. I am stunned. My daugther (being the excellent daughter who she is) uploaded this photo of her daughter’s (my grandaughter’s) recent first hair cut. When this photo appeared (magically/electronically) on my computer (Toshi’s) screen, tears sprang to my eyes and I inhaled, sharply. This little girl and I share recognizable DNA. DNA passed through my daughter; both of them a part of me.

Being the adopted woman who I am, this connection has me spiraling all over this Universe – in my mind and my emotions.
