25 minutes until my birthday

Happy Birthday!

Are you 10 or 55 today? No matter what the greeting cards say, it's just as exciting to have my birthday in 25 minutes now as it was when I was 10.

There is the sense of occasion, of marking that important moment when you came into this world. I wouldn't miss it or deny it because it makes me older.

This is REALLY the new year. What will I do this year? Where will I go? What wonderful things will I see?

Of course, it all comes out in my writing. It always has. It's fitting that I greet each personal new year with words since they seem to be so much a part of me.

Only 20 minutes now. I can feel the excitement. I've always had a hard time sleeping through the night before this special day. Only now, I don't have to hide it!

If May 23 is your birthday too, I send you my best regards and hope that you too are eager for the coming day!
