The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
~Aart van der Leeuw
Yesterday was my birthday, and I was a total princess about it! I love it when I can declare a Birthday Weekend--let's keep the party going is my motto. My dear family treated me well--I'm the proud owner of a Heifer sheep, a pair of earrings, and 8 matching cloth napkins (our napkins reflect our motley collection of dishes: no more than any 3 matching and without holes). We enjoyed a drive down iconic Highway 1 north of San Francisco on a sunny day--you could come to believe in eternal life gazing out over the ocean... and Gingko spotted 3 T-shirts for the Abandoned T-Shirt Project.
Because I am now officially a year older, I have made a few resolutions:
1. Join Twitter.
Done! @FeralJanine I haven't yet done any formatting or put up my photo, but I've sent my first Tweet, complete with typo.
2. Draw for 15 minutes every day.
3. Do yoga for 15 minutes every day.
4. Learn the functions on my phone, my iPod, and my camera. I'm so tired of having these miracles of modern electronics and not knowing how to use them. Plus, what is more aging than gray hair? Saying, "oh, I just don't know how to [fill in the blank]." Competence is sexy!
