it is my birthday tomorrow!
even though i am getting insanely old (turning 23 is kinda unfathomable right now, i am a grownup?), i love birthdays. i have been alive and well for another year. i am given things like pie and chimay and sugar skulls and teapots and small harmless explosives. i get to have a little party and celebrate becoming alive. fall is the best time to be born.
here's what i have been up to right on the edge of 23:
going through and looking at what i was up to at this time last year. last year i was a radish.
now it's tea and mountain streams.
p.s. a good song to be 23 to, or be anything to.
