In the muddiness of my introspection, I forgot to mention that today is my cousin Barry's birthday. He is 23. Though he is far far away and I have had no contact with him the past year and a half, I send a thought homeward to him wherever he is right now and whatever he may be doing.
Many happy returns of the day
May all your wishes come true
May you never be lonely when alone
May you always have peace, happiness and health
May you have the sun shining down on you wherever you go...
Rainbows following you whatever you do and;
May God's blessings always be with you
