balloons.jpgGrowing older is tough to take, but it has been the most joyful experience of my life.  Granted, the degenerative nature of my illness counts against me.  But every year I move up the age-scale, I detach more from with the mechanisms consumerist society uses to pitch us against each other to create a demand for products and services.

To put it simply, every year, I am happier and more content in my life.  I think more of others, and I take more gentle care of myself.

Birthdays are blessings because they remind me of how far I’ve come each year, and I can’t wait for mine this weekend.
