This birthday does not seem like a big deal. When I get further along on my key projects, then I'll feel like celebrating the passage of time; right now, it seems that I'm in a pleasant between-times.
Yet some celebratory mood has been building. The books and clothes I ordered from wish lists have been coming in, a couple of packages each of the last few days. I have cards and presents from my sister and mother - the remains of my family of origin. My wonderful family-of-choice is fixing me a special Birthday dinner, and there will probably also be more cards and a few more presents.
Feel free to wish me Happy Birthday, Dear Readers! Also, in case you missed it, I was hoping for more comments on my recent post about Mainstream vs. Alternative value systems.
Love to me and love to you!
