We did a sibling lunch to celebrate my brother’s birthday today. That’s bro, sis and me. We went to the Crab’s Claw in Lavallette and had seafood lunches complete with soup, salad and dessert. So good. Not a morsel left. And my siblings are simply funny people.

It was nice to be in Lavallette, the scene of family vacations for many years. It is a place where so many of our fondest family memories were created. It is also a place where I’ve done a lot of meditative walks and journaling.

All around nice.
