Retroactive nostalgia

cbertsch's blog has an entry of special interest to me this week. He's writing about a picture of his partner Kim standing on a bridge in Seattle when he says this:

"As I examine the image, though, I can't fully indulge my nostalgia. There's a voice inside my head saying, 'Where's Skylar?' It makes me sad to think that she wasn't there with us."

Speaking as someone who's been married to Dan for four weeks shared his life with Dan for ten years, it's funny to me how strongly that statement hit home. I often feel sad that Dan wasn't around for my college graduation, that he didn't go to the Chi Psi luau senior year, that he wasn't able to visit Berlin in 1989... all of those things. I guess I love him so much that I want to be able to share with him all of the wonderful things that have happened in my life.

I imagine that's what Charlie's feeling too. With someone as wonderful as his daughter Skylar, you just wish they could have experienced all of those incredible things from your past right there beside you. :)
