Strange encounter of the blog kind

Went for a typical Kerala Christian engagement lunch. A large group of people all dressed up. While making polite conversation a pretty young thing comes up and asks about my daughter-in-law. I smile, "How..." "I read her blog--and yours". I am zapped, so zapped that I did not ask her name or where she lives. I did ask what her nom de plume might be, which she told me but I didn't quite catch.
So, pretty young woman, if you are reading this, sorry I seemed so lost and it was nice to meet you.

A little body curled trustingly in the crook of my arm
Brings back memories, powerful body memories;
A surge of love flows out
And surrounds the little form.
