They Say It's My Birthday

But I don't really feel my age--a good thing, I suppose. It is funny how as I get older, each birthday feels less important and more special all at once. When people ask me, "What do you want for your birthday?" the answer becomes less and less about me and more about others: keep my children safe and healthy; let them find happiness; provide my loved ones purpose; give us sunshine and warmth this weekend.

There's not much I need that can be bought in stores.

Though I really, really, really would like an agent.

But if you don't have an agent to give me, could you please take time to read and review my novel excerpt? PURE has made the Top 100 in the General Fiction category of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. It would make me feel even younger than I feel today! ==> PURE--ABNA Entry

Now, off to blow out those candles. Peace...


  1. PURE had been dowloaded, and I will get to it (hopefully later this week). In the interim, enjoy your day.
    As I get older, firstly I forget what the number attached to my age is - it has no reflection on how I feel. Somedays younger, others older than dirt. And we are increasingly opting for shared experiences rather than things as gifts. A trip to somewhere we love, exposure to something new...
    Enjoy your day.

    1. Dear EC, thank you for the lovely birthday words and for the lovely review on Amazon! I also forget how old I am, and when I realize 'the number', I am still shocked--life goes by so quickly and slowly at the same time. Peace...

  2. Happy Birthday!
    And congrats on ABNA. Off to read ...
