Happy Birthday to Me


Another year older. I feel so relaxed about this birthday. I don't really know why. For some reason, one particular birthday keeps coming into my mind -- I must have been five or six years old. I had a birthday party (probably had three throughout my life) and there is a picture of me greedily opening a big box containing a typewriter. How prophetic that present would be! I had no idea that present would be the beginning of a lifetime on a keyboard in some form or fashion. The printed word....writing my thoughts on a typewriter....taking two years of typing in high school -- probably the best thing my mother ever made me do! That education helped me earn money typing papers in college, get great temp jobs in the summer.......Not to mention it comes in darn handy in my current job as well as one the most important typing pastimes I have -- BLOGGING. So on my birthday, I would like to say thank you to all of you that read Windfall Woman. I'll raise a glass to you sometime today and want you to know that I consider all of your friendships among the best "presents" I could receive! Peace.....

Do me a favor, have a few drinks on my behalf. Finals suck, although maybe I'll sneak out tomorrow sometime and make a toast for you. Hell, life doesn't stop just because "the man" says I gotta take a few tests.

Have a good day, and another great year!
And thanks for the typewritter memories. It was also my first typewriter I bought at an Air Force BX on Indian Mountan, Alaska in 1968 that got me going as a poet. Writing got me through some interesting times in life. And I see you are doing quite well by it too.
Thanks for your work. It gives me another view of our divine gifts.

Aw, I hate when I do that. I drained the glass before the toast again. (clink) With an empty glass I say "Happy Birthday, and may there be many more."
