Sublime

I had a zen moment this morning, driving to work in the dark, just me, the crescent Moon, and Venus rising.   The radio on, rockin' out to Led Zepplin's "Kashmir".  Eight minutes and thirty-two seconds of perfection.

I am so happy to be alive today, my birthday.  Forty-eight years on Earth in this form and almost 14 billion years in existence for my elements.  And who knows what they've been in between...

I'm enjoying the journey.

Kashmir

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
With stars to fill my dream.
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been.

To sit with elders of a gentle race
This world has seldom seen.
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
When all will be revealed.

Happy Birthday Trish. I am glad to get to know you. And it seems we have similar taste in music and ruminations. :-)

Many more birthdays to come my friend, and may they all be as joy-filled as today's celebration of the gift of life and love.

I believe the world will be better with you in it.
