Happy Birthday, “Rene”
Many regular visitors to this site have read my story, “Etsuko,” which mostly takes place in 1990-91 in the small mountain town of Asaki (with a post script playing out in Denver in 2008). It just occurred to me this morning that it’s Rene’s birthday.
Today’s also the day the wisteria usually blooms in Central Alabama. Sometimes a day or two before, sometimes a day or two after. But March 24 is the best reference point.
