A Year Ago Today

I often think to look back at what we were doing a year ago—sort of a 'this day in the history of Pablo' kind of thing. This desire to look back is for two reasons. One, Pablo was alive a year ago today, and probably doing something cute or funny or precocious or hilarious. Two, it's hard for me to remember anything right now. Despite the fact that I've written 98% of the Pablog, I often look back through the pages to recall what happened. And in some cases what didn't happen. It's quite helpful. And usually makes me very happy.

So, I've had this 'year ago today' idea for some time. Almost never do it cos we're walking down the street or in a museum when I think of it. But right now I'm resting at the hotel, and finally remembered to do it.

The first post in August 2008 is from August 2—and it contains two videos shot by Polly. One of which is one of our favorite Pablo videos ever. Even though I'm re-posting 'yesterday in the history of Pablo,' I figure you'll let me slide based on the nine hour time difference between Italy and LA.

You are fortunate to be able to "heal" on a luxurious vacation abroad. Not all of us who have lost a child can afford this. Will this ever end?

Salve wanderers! My first post, but I have been reading your blog since shortly after Pabangel got his wings. Thank you for the link back to last year - haven't gotten that far back yet. I just wanted to remind you all that we all are still here (the legion created by Pablove) and you are all daily still in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you for bringing us along to the continent. Grazie!
Namaste, Maureen
