my birthday was the 26th.
for those keeping score, i turned 47.
i wish to thank those responsible for the gifts they bestowed upon me.
those who gave a handshake and two handed hugs, i thank you.
those who sent e-mails and facebook messages, i thank you.
those who, by thier mere existance and pervasiveness of character were a gift in and of themselves, i thank you.
for those who phoned to wish me many happy returns, i also thank you.
for the girl with no last name.......thanks.
but i reserve my deepest gratitude for the universe and all of whatever the fuck this all is that does all of this astonishing stuff all of the time, not only on my birthday, but every day...........
