I have a certain discomfort with melo drama, but I do feel in melodramatic terms.
And sometimes wonderful moments happen,
and sometimes the most precious ones aren't caught on camera.
And I guess that's fine, despite the disappointment.
When they all sang היום יום הולדת to me,
their voices were a harmonious symphony of love
and their hearts were where their words were,
they meant it,
(and I didn't have time or mental availability to take out the camera)
and my eyes soared from one to the other
and it filled me with joy.
That was most certainly a moment to preserve and to remember forever.
Even though it's not on camera.
