Janet has to make a second birthday cake after Daniel gets into the first one. And Hetty arrives home from her outing to the publishers three hours earlier than expected, and she seems to want to go everywhere that the party planning is happening.

There was a peace then; an indescribable feeling of immortality in the ebb and flow of the tide, and the seemingly endless stretch of beach and sky. Now as I gaze out upon those same sparkling waters, I realize that youth is never left behind, but is carried always, gently, in the heart.
