This morning I woke up another year older,
Wiser hopefully, as time goes by and experience + lessons learned make an impact.
There is what I thought I knew, what I have learned, and that giant category of what is still mystery beckoning.
I am richer in relationships and connection to be sure. Pure gift.
This year my birthday coincides with the number attributed to the man presently in the white house.
My birthday wish upon waking was that he might focus on building common ground, promoting the common good and peace.
A girl can dream, especially on her birthday.
Most of all I am just grateful. For community, friends, and family near and far. For gifts given and received. For life.
