I don't do a great deal of celebrating birthdays-my own or others. today I am reminded of 3 I should celebrate-
young Edith Sitwell on the 7th september
my grandfather George Joseph Cushwa
born on this day- died three days after his 50th dinner party celebration-
failing to blow out three of his birthday candles.
(GJC is left, as a young man, his nickname was "Dutch")
he entitled the photograph
"on the road to the asylum"- a clever and carefree young man-fearing little.
& dear friend & impetus for little augury-
I do so wish I had an early photograph of SP-he would say-
god! look at all that hair, girl! I was quite a scoundrel then.
celebrate those you love every day, today I celebrate.
