Blow Harder


I had a birthday last week.  An uneventful birthday.  One more link in the chain of many birthdays that came before it. 

A few years ago, I began the practice of viewing each year’s birthday as a microcosmic snapshot of my life.  It’s a day to take stock of the things that are important to me – are my friendships healthy and happy?  Do I have a good romantic life?  Am I fulfilled at work?   Am I spending time with my family?  Is art and creativity a part of my life?  Have I done something interesting lately?  Am I taking care of myself?  Do I like who I am?

This is the first year since I began this tradition that I wasn’t pleased with the answers.

  1. I don’t usually examine birthdays too hard … hey! it’s your birthday!
    I usually look behind me and measure it with other birthdays: it’s a 50/50 proposition, but usually another birthday is better than no birthday.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope the B&B deals go through and yoga with women is happening and 2010 is the best ever!

    note: leaving the toilet seat up sometimes is a good thing. hee hee!
