Special birthday in the family today. They come sooooo fast. I wish I could give The Birthday Girl a really special present. But she doesn't want it. I want to give her the benefit of all my errors. My egregious screw ups, my omissions, my naive wanderings, my fouls, my indulgences, my stubborn refusals, all the lost time. All of it. I wish I could give her my learnings, my lessons from a lifetime of mistakes. But she doesn't want 'em. Apparently she wants to make her own mistakes and gather her own learnings. Life is so unfair sometimes! Happy Birthday, Peed. I hope this next year is the best year of your whole life.

I was glad you let me know about Kingsolver's book on my blog. She is another I should have listed as a favorite author and I have wanted to read that book. Poisonwood Bible sure stayed with me and I loved Animal Dreams. I will get this one soon. Sigh... so many books, not enough time.

Oh, happy birthday to the birthday girl. May we all have all the time in the world to learn our lessons, and make our own mistakes. Hope each year just keeps getting better.
