Monday, September 1

the birthday month has begun

today is the first day of the rest of my life.
today also happens to be the first day of my birthday month.
coincidence?

i'm a person who makes new year's resolutions. but who ever keeps those?
but it's my birthday month, so technically, it *is* a new year for me.
gregorian calendar be damned! the french revolutionaries invented their own calendar, so why can't i?
(ok, so robespierre and others lost their head, but let's not go there...)

i've been mulling over the resurrection of my blog for sometime, but i never could put my finger on exactly what i would write about. what my 'angle' would be. i still don't know. but i've decided to give a little CPR to the old blog and see what comes of it. it'll sort itself out somehow. things usually do.

as some people that are dear to me know, i've got this niggly little superpower that involves details. little picayune details. and i get hung up on them. which is why it helps to have dear friends that can see the Big Picture.

so, dear friend, thanks for that.

there have been some things that i've been meaning to do that i haven't gotten around to yet. you know those things, the ones that you keep putting off and the longer you keep putting them off the more you put them off because by the time you get around to actually doing them it's almost like 'what's the point?" actually, there's a lot of things that i've been meaning to do. so maybe i should start doing them?

let's see what my new year brings.

Happy Birthday Month To Me.
