Another birthday

p5230771meadow.jpgAll three of us have birthdays in May. Sylvia’s is on the 6th, mine is on the 8th, and Jan’s was yesterday. He and I are the same age for fifteen days, and then he leaps ahead again.

Jan always takes Sylvia’s birthday and my birthday as days off of work, but yesterday was the first time in a long time that he took his birthday off, too. We celebrated by heading to Longwood Gardens (which is where we’d spent my birthday, too).

It was one of those perfect spring days: sunny, clear, breezy, neither too warm nor too cold, not humid. The garden wasn’t very crowded, and the flowers put on a great show. The best part for me was just watching Sylvia be happy there. She loves that place, and it’s such a wonderful location for roaming and exploration and just being.

    I read a lot of blogs, but this is one of the most sincere that I’ve ever seen.

    And strangely familiar.

    Happy Birthday.

    funny that you and Arianna have the same birthday — you are both practically the same person – a wordsmith, a knitter and a may eighther!
