It’s my birthday in less than a month.
I’ll be turning 47 this year and covid is really putting a damper on celebrating.
I wish I could share a meal with friends and go to a movie or out dancing.
Instead I will probably be at home.
Doing nothing except eating a nice dinner with the family and sharing a cake (no candles, naturally).
I’ve had enough birthdays now to be relatively blasé about them.
Some years I want to celebrate, some years less so.
This year I feel like CELEBRATING.
We’re alive and living on a rock hurtling through space with a giant nuclear fusion reactor nearby.
Why NOT celebrate how amazing that is?
This year, I’m thinking of arranging a virtual birthday party for myself, complete with zoom link and funny hats.
Yes, that’s right.
Funny hats encouraged.
I could also see if my favorite bawdy songstress is available for a Zoom performance!
That could be nice. . .
