Reflections for my son, Daniel, on his 29th birthday

boston, boulder, berkeley,
Santa..atlanta, barbara
cities you called home.
mother, father, sister, friends and lovers,
we have all shared you.
indefatigiable, persistent, 
dauntless, endlessly energetic.
you have always been this way
as you crawled, walked, biked,
skied, dribbled and raced on
your way to independence.
Patience may not be your strong suit.
it comes with age,
you have plenty of time
carry on to the stars.
