Sorry for the lack of posts but I’ve been so busy at work and with home matters I haven’t had a chance to post, but enough of that boring stuff, it’s time for cake! Today is my birthday and I wish I could have everyone over for some cake and tamales.

Right now I’m sitting here waiting for my husband so we can go out and celebrate. I’ve already received some great birthday loot. I promise to tell you all about it soon.

For now, I leave you with an excerpt from a favorite poet who was also born on this day.

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

From The Waking by Theodore Roethke.
