Today a very special Fedex package from Alaska arrived for Scott. It contained a wooden walking stick that belonged to his Uncle Bob who passed away over a year ago. Bob Satin was Scott’s mother’s brother and a very influential figure in Scott’s life. Bob is the one that invited Scott to come to India to attend the AIS school in Delhi in 1968. The year that changed everything. The reason why we are in Goa now.
Guess what is carved on the end of the stick? Much to our delight: a bear’s head. I’m watching Scott as he sleeps in our bed right now, the bear stick clutched in his right hand by his side. Thank you to Uncle Bob’s widow Susan for sending this to Scott. The timing is perfect.
bearly keep from crying…just rt timely
