My Birthday Gift, to you!

I just had a birthday. Two things happened. I got a tattoo, and I recorded a song. I did both in the company of good friends.The song is my take on a Leonard Cohen song, "Bird On A Wire". Not coincidentally, so is the tattoo.

I want to share both with you, but not before I say how grateful I am for this life, and to all of you (if you're reading this, I'm referring to you) for the endless support and kindness. Each year I'm reminded how many good people inhabit this planet, and particularly how many I'm lucky to know.

With that said, it's an uphill battle, for each of us. Every day presents new challenges. Challenges to our spirit, our faith (whatever that may be), and to our will. It is a great virtue to be able to continually get knocked down, only to rise again to push that boulder up the hill. It's an even greater virtue then, to stay true, and free, in the face of this hardship. Yet, we hear stories every day of just that: The resilient human spirit.

This inspires me. I hope it does you, as well.

Now, without further ado, it's time to share my birthday gifts to myself, with you!
