My birthday stretched out for five days this year. To read about it, you need to click on the photos to read the captions.

David always makes his own recycled birthday cards. Here is this year’s:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I’ll bet all those candles warmed your deserving heart. Sounds like much love gifting around you, well dessert-ed (I mean deSERVED, of course!) XO! from Glen & Mar, from the still chill North

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUDY – I may be the last to wish you a happy birthday but I bet I am the first to wish you a happy 4th~!

    It looks like you made the best of it, and NO you do not need Naval Jelly or even Rust-Oleum, you seem to be doing fine just as you are. When people move around as much and as fast as you do, age takes care of itself and you seem to be doing very well from what I see on the photos.. I feel that, in doing so, the package may become frayed but the ‘gift inside’ (our brain) stays fresh. Thanks for that almost rotogravure of your celebrations. Not as good as my being there, but I enjoyed seeing you celebrating.

    I have a post that I am working on this morning, which I have not yet decided whether or not to send out to the ‘masses’ , – because they may take me for being lame brained. Some of these things I just write and then put into my “keep file”; or only send it privately to close friends.

    If you missed it in all of your celebrating, it is an addendum or continuation to this post with the addition of something that happened to me just last night, or very early this morning and it also involves a real old movie, and also Jane Austin and her final novel “Persuasion”~! To me very interesting.

    You probably noticed in my writing that there are times when I seem to have mental telepathy or even a ghost in my life and includes a possible belief in Psychic and Paranormal Phenomena. Strange things do happen to me at times~! And last night was one of these~!

    I hope you are looking forward to a fine trip north, weather and politics be damned. I am looking forward to your writing along the way.
