I’m ornery tonight so let’s talk about birth rights

Or maybe not. We can go there some other day. I hope to hell we can have a conversation about birth rights involving the Moomincabin someday but I’m not sure we’ll ever get there. Birth right? Whose? I’m not sure. But I think I actually have as much of a birth right to that place as anyone else does. I was actually THERE when we built it. I was six years old. Me and some of my cousins would run over there from the Old Cabin to check things out every day and Kenny Steve the builder would let us run around and, uh, check things out.

I am closer to 10 in this pic of 10 of us 11 cousins. The Beautiful Jan is missing from the pic that day but she was very much there in spirit and definitely a vibrant part of the family to this day.

    It sounds like it has been part of your life for a long, long time (not that you are old!) and that it’s definitely part of your birthright.
