Today is my parents' 39th wedding anniversary. My brother has flown in from the East Coast, and my sister will be prying me out of my chemo shell later to join them for a celebratory brunch and party. I have been so tired and impaired I haven't even managed a card for them, but my gift is that I'm still alive despite the cancers. It's perhaps the only gift I can give at this point.

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad. I love you.

I've always been startled by the resemblance between your father and my late husband, Jack Chalker. Probably an ethnic thing...

Your brother looks like the little hippie in the family.

Oddly, among us adult children I'm definitely the hippie-est.
