July 6, 2010. It’s a Tuesday. My day off; he’s still jobless, so we have the day together. We usher in my 22nd year with lunch at Kermadec, a seafood restaurant on the waterfront (it’s not as swank as The Grove, but a lot swisher than the little ethnic places we usually frequent). The views are great – it’s airy and the lighting is fabulous. A spontaneous shot snapped by T turns out amazingly well. It’s me, with better skin and hair than usual. A little wry, a little self-conscious, a little awkward. No forced smiles or poses. It’s a moment of serenity, of getting away from everyday life, from stress and from worry, and back to the basics: the simple pleasure of dining.
