Had a wonderful day

Though I don't really celebrate birthdays (we believe that every day one is alive, happy, and in good health is a day to celebrate), it WAS nice today...anushsh put up a post wishing me, and several people called up...and I got some affectionate calls from expected, and completely unexpected, people! The cockles of my heart are so warmed that it is causing moisture to condense from my eyes...friends are SUCH a treasure.Thank you, each and every one of you. I am 53 today..and I feel as if I am about half that age! A combination of good health, and a very happy life...

Thank you, anushsh, I had a great time at the Ranga Shankara festival with your company, and with Geeta Ramani too. The fact that today's play was excellent helped, too.

Now amoghavarsha was supposed to get me one of the several Belgian Dark Chocolates that he owes me, and I have heard his account of conducting a photography workshop for 15 people ranging from 11 to 67...but the rain has put paid to that plan, and we are probably going somewhere else for dinner....

A very nice day, starting with a lOOOOOONg conversation with beloved dotter and beloved-er son-in-law...what more can one ask of life? If I rubbed a lamp now and a genie came and said I could make 3 personal wishes..I would be hard put to find something personal that I want.

I am really lucky in my life. I must have been practically a divine saint in my last birth to earn this kind of karma!

Anyway, here's a picture of a beautiful little bird...
