Hello, Thirty-Six.

4 Feb

Today is my birthday. Yes, I’m an Aquarius – friendly and independent, honest and loyal, but also perverse and unpredictable, contrary, detached.

This week has been a swirl of emotions and disappointments, great joy and the wonderful experience of being cared-for. I doubt it gets any easier growing older, as we struggle to say good-bye to old aspirations and dreams, and prepare for new adventures.

I don’t know her, but I feel like Cecilia Woloch is one person who has mastered this. She’s a poet of incredible talent and passion, and I’d be lucky, damned lucky, to enjoy a career as fulfilling as hers.

Here’s her poem “The Passionate Suitcase.”

Rock on, people!
