she was taller than i thought she would be. even with the slight schlumping of the shoulders but who can blame her in that new york city august heat. when you are finally warmed to the bones, the bones tend to soften a little and good posture goes out the window. she wasn’t in any way physically attached to the determined little girl also crossing the street through the milling crowd but there was no doubt in my mind that the two were navigating the busy crosswalk together. i suppose there is an invisible chain that links mothers and daughters together as they make passage through the one life they’ve been given. especially if it’s just the two of them against the world. i couldn’t see her eyes because her sunglasses were very dark and i thought this couldn’t possibly be . . . being from california, i didn’t know yet that celebrities can move about new york freely without attracting too much attention. and now i am sure. while visiting my daughter in the big apple, i had a katie & suri moment. and i wish them the very best as they begin this new chapter alone together. be safe.
