New Moon

Auspicious new moon on my birthday today!

At 54, I’m doing great. Looking in the mirror can be a surprise, but other than that, mind, body and spirit are feeling fine. My plans are nothing out of the ordinary. I’ll write a scene (it will involve a new moon…) and later, teach. It works out that I get to do my “Intro to Shakespeare” lecture with slideshow this afternoon, so that’s a nice perk.

Otherwise, I’ll probably do a little housework, check papers, stop at the grocery store, and watch Grey’s Anatomy. Maybe instead of cooking we’ll order pizza. Al already gave me my present. I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s something I wanted for my laptop. A thingy that lets me plug in more than two USB cords at a time. I love it more than perfume or flowers! Really…


  1. Happy Belated Birthday! I will share with you, in honor of the occasion, a quotation I ran across today:

    For the unlearned, old age is winter; for the learned it is the season of harvest.

    May your harvest be rich.



  2. Of course, upon reflection, it occurs to me that you might object to the phrase “old age” — I am only a youngster of 49 myself, but I am beginning to see the corn yellow already. Forgive me if I gave offense.
