Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


Today is my birthday. Other than a few too many green birthday presents, I really think today is one of the best days to have your birthday. Especially when it comes to holiday birthdays. It really is a bit of a party holiday. So, most of the known universe will be out celebrating with me tonight. It’s not a gift giving holiday, so I don’t get robbed of my special day by having to get everyone else stuff. I know people who are born on or near Christmas and Mother’s Day who often get the two in one gift. I dodged that. 

So, raise your glasses! and drink a toast to St. Patrick and all of us born on this marvelous day!


I’m turning 34 this time around. When I was turning 30, I kept waiting for some terrible midlife kind of freak out or depression. I felt like I was supposed to be feeling one of those things like you see on tv. The one’s where you ruin your life or at least toss the apple cart over to see what turns up. I never had that. As a matter of fact, I’ve felt more myself the older I get. I feel more and more focused and powerful as I shed the superficial crap that we are preoccupied with when we are younger. I still have some stuff to work on, of course. But, in general, I feel better able to deal with life’s stumbling block’s.

I think this year has been pretty good overall.

So, Happy Day! Erin Go Bragh! and as they say….

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
and also
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world,
with joy that long endures
May all life’s passing seasons,
bring the best to you and yours!
