Two Birthdays

Original playout date: 11 July 2007
Duration: 9:52

Once again a nice memory of my late parents, and I am glad that there are these few snatches of them that live on. As indeed do the charming scenes of all three little ones so cute and tiny, and Elena walking around on her own. These were the days we thought would never end, and thanks to video, my friend, in a sense they don’t.

My parents are not the only ones late in this video, it is worth mentioning. The song “smuglianka” was recorded by the Russian Alexandrov military choir, which was brought to their untimely deaths in an air accident a couple of years ago. Their recordings also give them a kind of immortality.

We have George’s fourth and Sophie’s seventh birthday parties together in this enchanting film.
