Birthday Speech, of a Sort

I had the most lovely Birthday yesterday, thank you so everyone for all your wishes, I think all they came true.

The day started nicely enough with the Weather Service issuing a Winter Storm Warning. I have been complaining that the east Coast has been having all the fun, so I guess it was a case of ask and you will receive , at least on ones Birthday and then a long black velvet riding coat , that I had forgotten I had ordered, arrived..

I then saw FOUR hawks and a bald headed eagle on my way to the grocery store, ( that's some kind of raptor energy going on! ) and at the grocery store filled my Customer Cash card up ( when one does, one takes it up and they scratch off the silver to see what you have won, between $1 and $1000 ) and I won a dollar. ( wouldn't it have been a better story had I won $1000????? ) had a lovely Birthday Talk with our poor sick Creature of the Night and went off to my trainer, who as it turned out, was also sick and could not make it. ( my kind of Birthday Workout! )

Band practice , with Johnny and Paul was , as ever, lovely fun. We have a lot of new songs, and I think we will have a LOT of fun this weekend playing as a trio at Charlies. ( Friday and Saturday 7:30 to 11:30 ) They gave me a cheesecake and sang Happy Birthday. Our dart game never happened, we got to the Half Time and found out St Domminics Trio ( who are a quartet, go figure ) were playing and they didn't even wait to finish their song before they were calling out for me to go and get my fiddle.

I do love sitting in with them. They are all really really good players, they do a lot of Van Morrison tunes , and I learn so much every time I play with them. We took a lot of pictures, but sadly, none of them seemed to have turned out. I am going back next Wednesday to play with them again. Darts are over-rated.

I thought a lot about past Birthdays this year, many of them with Johnny, and with Paul these past few years, lots of gigs, learnng to ski, mostly wearing a tiara ( which is funny when one is learning to ski ) traveling to Mexico and Hawaii, being with family. I thought a lot about last year, on my Birthday.

Malena and I hadn't actually met at that point, that was still a month away, but we had been talking non-stop since the start of the year. I went back and read some of the e-mail from that time, and we had already formed the band, and were starting to get the website up and plan the CD. And our first meeting. She was already my best friend. ( a lot of people found this kind of strange, we didn't. We knew. )

She made me a dress for my Birthday, and called it a Goth Snow White Dress, there used to be a picture of me in it on the photo page. It fit perfectly, and all she had to go on were my most in-expert measuring skills. I love that dress. There were bath salts, and potions and a tarot bag and all sorts of things. She knew me well. Still does.

And now we are here.

I have so much I want to do this year, so much I want to manifest and bring into my life. I want more music, and fitness, and more people in my life, as each and everyone I meet seems to make it all richer. I want to take everything further and be everything I ever dreamed of, if that doesn't sound silly.

I can't wait to see what happens with Malena and I this year.

I hope you will be there, too.

Love, music, magic and Birthday Speeches,

Why would any of what you said be considered silly? May it all come to fruition, and more.

Of course you knew, Lorraine (re: your friendship with Malena). You have the gift, gurrrrlll!

Cheesecake! What a wunnerful birthday!

I hope you enjoy being 25 as much as I enjoy being 632 years old. ;-)

went with Mimi to go see one half of the comic book exhibit in LA, and good news, it is AMAZING. we have to do round two next week, as it is split into two museums, but anyone near LA area, please make it a point to go.
The Will Eisner works are beautiful and illuminating.
I spent a good long time trying not to cry over some of the Chris Ware pieces, his detail to the human condition is heartbreaking.
