Happy Birthday, Caine

Robert, Desert Son OM kindly reminded us that today is Caine’s birthday. I am rubbish at dates, but I always prefer birthdays to death days, as they speak of life and quite often, of happy memories.

How to better celebrate Caine’s birthday than with a bird, so here’s a duck on a sea of gold. Happy Birthday, Caine!

    Thank you, Giliell, for posting this. The photo you chose is perfect. I also prefer to remember people on their birthday, but I didn’t know when Caine’s birthday was. Today I will celebrate her life and all the fabulous things that she created, especially her writing here at Affinity. It is my ongoing honour to be part of the team that keeps this blog alive. My thanks also to Desert Son for reminding us of this special date.

    Lovely, and thank you for this post, image, and community.

    Warmest hope, care, and strength to dakotagreasemonkey.

    I’m terrible at the internet, so I’ll drop a following brief word in The Never Ending Thread and then resume the shadows once more for a bit, with a little hope for maybe a slight increase in visits as I wrestle with every other thing, holding on by the fingernails, as ever.

    Still learning,
