Because the baby is now... er, 39

Something from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

To laugh often and love much;
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
to earn the approbation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
to give oneself;
to leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation;
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived--

This is to have succeeded.

Damn hard yardstick, but I'm trying.

Happy birthday my dear friend!

Naka-ilang taon, boyfriends, kalaguyo, sakuna, pagdiriwang, pagdadalamhati, pagkalasing, at kung aning-aning na ang lumipas, heto pa rin tayo, alive and kicking, ika nga.

Nawa'y marami pa tayong pagdaanan together. Isa ka sa mga inambong biyaya sa akin, sa paglalakbay nitong bonggang-bonggang buhay. Salamat, teh.
