Let the birthday week begin

Friends show up at birthday dinners with ridiculous things. I never ask for gifts, but this year, in hopes of preventing more foo-foo soaps and gift baskets, I said, kids, if you must, bring me something more beneficial and much much cheaper….DIRT. Looking outside on this somewhat sunny day, I’ve got Spring under my skin, reminding me how close we are to pea plantin’ and all that good stuff. But while I giggle at this, I also like to remind people that the best way to give is by providing the gift of presence rather than presents. Be there for your friends, for your community, for your earth.

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.” (Dr Martin Luther King, Jr)
