Happy Birthday Mimi!


She showed up here with a comment in March, 2012. How? From where? No idea.

She rings the morning bell at the crack of dawn with a dash of wit or splash of insight – softening up the spillway for others to come behind her. Gentle. Grace. Light.

I’ve had a handful of guest bloggers post on my blog. Don’t miss: The Final Act of Love

Her post was recognized by WordPress as one of the best of the day in “Freshly Pressed“: An Ode to Entomology

Here’s an excerpt from her beautiful post yesterday on the Eve of a Big Day:

Perhaps that’s it – I still believe in wonders.  In fact I think I notice them more than ever before.  Wonder in the breath of the wind, the intangible, unbreakable connections that tie me to those I love.  Wonder at how much more meaning my days have now that they have fewer requirements to dilute the attention I might give to the sun on my face.  And while I marvel, I also realize how tightly I am holding onto this life.  How much I love the moments as well as the spaces in between, when I breathe in the absolute sweetness of being a part of it all.

  1. Thank you David – I do believe we are friends in so many of those intangible, inexplicable ways. Serendipity that I found your blog two years ago? A giggling universe laughing at the prospect of friendship between these two genuine and slightly neurotic souls? Whatever the genesis, I am so thankful. And here we are, almost 5AM, coffee in hand and a few minutes with Dave – the beginning of a very good birthday morning. Thanks my friend..


  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear friend!! In the happy, quixotic way that the universe often works, *I* discovered BOTH of your blogs at almost exactly the same time, and my life has been enriched immeasurably by your friendship. I look forward to starting my day with words of wisdom, laughter or inspiration from each of you. Here’s to 60 more!! 🙂
