I am attempting to be cheerful, because that is my nature

But having my birthday on the Monday before I go back to work again is kind of crappy. It feels like the last Sunday of the summer, except that it is Monday and the summer is still ahead of me. There will be many birthday celebrations all month long, but right now all I can think about is having to get up at 6:30 tomorrow, how employment is necessary but awful, how I am now in the 30th year of my life, as 29. That 29 is still very young makes it more ridiculous and more awful.

But I might as well enjoy these dramatic, tragic feelings--Mark and I are going to watch "Caged."

it doesn't get any easier, this aging thing. i thought at a certain age i'd have it all figured out. but alas, no, still making it up along the way.

happy birthday, lorraine! mine was saturday. i also went thru a patch of the blues. as for me i've entered my 41st year on the planet, other words, i'm 40.

[did you get the pdf i sent a while back, if no, i can send it again]

Happy great bday, Lorraine. I'm so glad you're w/ Mark on this day. For security! You're terrific. Today is also wonderful Bonnie June's 45th bday -- favorite college friend. Lovin' hugs her way. Happy & good day!
