A Song For My Nieces
July 11, 2015
I dedicate this song to my two wonderful nieces: 2 year-old Elyse and 3 month-old Sophie. They inspire me so much. I want to make this world more peaceful for them. In March 2015, my mom, dad, younger sister Lara, and I visited the Bay Area, California to be with my younger sister Mia, brother-in-law Mike, and niece Elyse to await the arrival of Sophie. Several times I played with Elyse as she pushed her wooden animals in a wooden truck on the floor of the living room. She called the animals “aminals” just like the title of this song “Aminals” by Baths. I just happened to listen to this song this afternoon as I worked on the edits of my first novel, a paranormal romance that takes place in Hawaii and a spiritual realm where spirits are trapped. The song made me think of my two nieces who I wish I could see more often even though I Skype with them almost weekly with my mom, dad, and baby sister Lara. It’s just not the same as seeing them in person.
Thinking of my nieces Elyse and Sophie
July 11, 2015
I cherish every moment I have with my nieces Elyse and Sophie, daughters of my younger sister Mia and brother-in-law Mike. I try to spend a month or two with them every year either in Hawaii, the Bay Area, California, or on a trip somewhere. I also try to Skype with them every week with my parents and my younger sister Lara. As they grow older, they remind me of how valuable time is. I want them to have happiness throughout their lives. I love them so much. I dedicate the song above to Elyse and Sophie, which has some cute kids singing about making up for lost time.
