You say it's your's my birthday too

Today is my birthday, and so far I am celebrating with a bagel breakfast sandwich from the bagel shop, a diet coke, and a quiet house. Things are pretty much going my way! We are planning on ending the day with dinner out with some friends. It's sad, but the splurges I look forward to all involve food. Not sure what to do with the middle of my day, I am torn between the choices of
a) go to a yoga class b) stay home and do laundry and work on video clips for memorial service c) waste time in my un-ability to make a decision and putter around the house or or course
d) go to a favorite restuarant for lunch (there's the food thing again! )-and take along some good ficiton and read and eat...what could get more blissful?!

thought I would leave you with some Zen Hen wisdom...

Outside In

One day a zen hen stood outside the slaughter-house door.

The farmer called to her, "chicken, chicken, why do you not enter?"

The Hen replied, "I do not see myself as outside, why enter?"

(from Harriet the zen hen by Debbie Keller)

"Thirty-five is a very attractive age; London society is full of women who have of their own free choice remained thirty-five for years." -Oscar Wilde
