A glimpse of the future

Life is to be fortified by many frienships. To love, and to be loved is the greatest happiness.

Here's to a lifetime of happiness. Congratulations to two friends...who will be joined in matrimony by the end of 2006.

A relief?

Japanese princess gives birth to heir. The question is which Japanese princess. Here are two women with different destinies. Harvard graduate Masako gave up public life when she failed to produce an heir to the Japanese throne. She's a proud mother of 4 year old Princess Aiko but despite producing a healthy baby girl , having failed to produce an obligatory son and heir, she is seen as a failure. What we forget to see is a brilliant woman, who gave up a promising diplomatic career to marry her prince.

Princess kiko , married to the second son has managed to resolve the succession issue in Japan by producing a son. Does this take the pressure off Masako? Will she finally be rid of her guilt? Only time will tell.

Congatulations Princess Kiko.
