It was a warm, balmy evening in Cape Town. A bunch of us students decided to get together after supper to have a jam session: me on the piano, one friend on the recorder and another on guitar.
We gathered in our university residence hall, took our respective places and began our gig with a noisy rendition of Hey Jude! We’d each invited some friends to join us, and they trickled into the hall one by one. Among them was a barefoot and gorgeous dark-haired student in grampa vest and jeans. I noticed his deep, dark eyes and as I looked at him, I was overwhelmed with the knowledge that he was part of my future.
So began a beautiful relationship that has so far lasted over 30 years, 27 years of which have been as husband and wife. Heck, was he ever part of my future. He still is.
Happy birthday, Mr Sunshine, I’m so glad you love music.
Sunshine signing off for today!
