Yesterday's birthday activities were plentiful and wonderful. Birthday text messages from both "E" and "Y", phone calls and other forms of messages from about six people, cards, quality time with people I like a lot... (Yes you, b, t, s, ...) Good things to eat and drink, educational activities (we spent the afternoon at a museum). Yes, I'm a total geek that I would want to do that on my birthday, and I loved it. It was just an all around amazing day. And I felt glad to be alive.
My favorite parts were watching a kid at the museum with those rollerball shoes clothes-line himself on the barriers that keep people in line at the ticket booth, thinking about and being asked the questions from "b", and all the conversations I had during the day at the museum and a funny swearing conversation while walking down the street on the way to get ice cream. Thanks much to all who were with me.
