thanks to all of my friends, lovers, and acquaintances who have expressed their well-wishes to me on my 38th birthday. as with so many of the years preceding this one, i spent the day doing things that were contrary to conventional wisdom, potentially show-stopping, detrimental to my health, trivially improvisational, and exceptionally over-thought. however, i had the best day i've had in a long time. singlular moments that can reverberate all around your being are few and far between, and today saw one of them. and to boot, i randomly bumped into natasha eloi again! woo-hoo!!!
i may have to rethink my whole adversity to birthdays after today.
song of the day for evaluating 38 years on this planet: fallen, sarah mclachlan
