A Very Special Day
Today, I celebrate the birth of an amazing human being. Her crackerjack wit makes me laugh until my sides feel like splitting. I will find myself giggling at inappropriate locations and inappropriate times, just remembering our sometimes-ribald conversations. She makes my brain light up like Christmas lights and undergo contortionistic feats, like a cerebral Cirque du Soleil. Her incredible art makes my eyes dance and my jaws succumb to gravity, and I have to reach for a paperbag to keep from hyperventilating. Sounds like quite a painful friendship, but I assure you, it is not. She elevates me and holds me up when I feel like crumbling and inspires me to reach new heights. Happy birthday, my dearest Ces and her Gemini twin sister. I celebrate you.
