It is my birthday.
Usually I am terribly excited, but not this birthday.
The deflated feeling isn't about being older, I just don't seem to have the wind in my sails today.
Until my friend, Cameron, unexpectedly showed me a quote by George Shaw.
You use a glass mirror to see your face;
you use art to see your soul.
That was just what I needed.
Everyday is a chance to express the soul.
Big or small.
Silly and sacred.
Express it at every moment...in every way.
So, on this birthday, I say thank you to my mom.
She has never thwarted my soulful expression.
She gave me a chance at Life.
