Connections: January 8

8 Comments

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAHooray for today!

Anniversary of me!

A wrinkly newborn

in 1943.

I came into a world

of war and ration

and still it seems

war is the fashion.

A birthday in January

makes perfect sense

it’s a two-headed time,

looking back and hence.

So I visit familiar faces

on my family wall

my genes, my leans, my rootings

perennial mysteries all.

I’d like to engage each one

in serious tete-a-tete

and ask my birthday question:

am I a grown-up yet?

  1. Happy Birthday!

  2. I’m hoping you have a great day today and a wonderful time on your next trip around the sun. My birthday wish for you (and all of us) is that we soon get to live in a world where peace is fashionable.

  3. My goodness, I’ve never been re-blogged before! Thank you!

  4. I’m glad to see the family wall is up and joining you in spirit during your day of celebration. Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Maureen!

  5. Thanks, Tamara! Yes, that wall keeps an eye on me. Well, many eyes.
